Abstract
The German Observational Study of Adult Twins (GOSAT) is the largest population-based observational twin study in Germany to date. Embedded in the Bielefeld Longitudinal Study of Adult Twins (BiLSAT), it addresses the etiology of personality and cognitive ability in a sample of 300 monozygotic (MZ) and dizygotic (DZ) adult twin pairs between 18 and 70 years of age. A major aim of the GOSAT lies in the utilization of different modes of measurement, i.e. peer reports and observational data in addition to self-reports, which have been used predominantly in past behavioral genetic research on personality in adults. Participants completed a full day assessment at the University of Bielefeld, including videotaped social interactions and presentations, psychometric intelligence tests, and computerized elementary cognitive tasks, as well as objective measures and unobtrusive behavior counts. The research design of the GOSAT was devised to reduce the potential impact of systematic rater bias on estimates of genetic and environmental influences to a minimum. Together with extensive self- and peer report data on personality dimensions available from the BiLSAT, the GOSAT provides a unique multimodal dataset to address the etiology of personality and intelligence. The paper provides an overview of results from GOSAT and BiLSAT to the present day.
