SYNDROME or a XXY syndrome, is a genetic disorder in which there is at least one extra X chromosome to a standard human male karyotype, for a total of 47 chromosomes rather than the 46 found in genetically normal humans. A Psychologist at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis Who studied 60 pairs of twins- real twins from one ovum, who had been seperated at birth and brought up to differen families. IQ Test Tolerance Test Conformity Test Adaptability Test Self-Control Sociability Religious belief Test Test on good humor And so on.. Does it have any genetic base? *1 message received Yes, they have. Professor Jean Medioni A professor of psychology at the University of Toulouse He claims that the studies carried out on the twins do not allow one to study the direct influence of heredity. All they gave are variations found in a person as a function of the variation in the genetic patterns of a given group. Jonathan Beckworth He points out that the studies on twins are biased Many types of behavior are due to interaction of several genes on each other. Then there is added complications brought by the environment. END. Professor Francis Strayer
