Using biosocial data collected from 1,000 people over four decades, Daniel Belsky, Terrie Moffitt et al derived a 'polygenic score' that predicts economic outcomes and behavior across the life course. Their analyses suggest that psychological factors play a role in linking a person's genetic profile and life outcomes such as professional achievement, financial security, geographic mobility, and upward social mobility.
