In an interaction model, the diathesis is necessary, but not a sufﬁcient condition for the disorder, whereas in an additive model, stress can produce the disorder in the person with a weak or absent diathesis, but it takes a greater degree of environmental trauma than it will for a vulnerable person with a strong diathesis for pathology. Thus, an aggressive act may be provoked in a vulnerable person by a relatively minor stress or “hassle,” whereas only a major event would product the same reaction in a nonvulnerable person.
Recent reviews of aggression (2–6) and impulsivity (7,8) are available. Most research indicates that aspects of aggression and impulsivity show at least some genetic inﬂuence; however, estimates range from 0% to 94% (2). The picture is complicated by deﬁnitional and/or measurement issues, gender differences, the different types of genetic variance (additive vs. , the high estimates that are reported do not take nonadditive genetic variance into account, so the estimates are greater than the identical twin correlations and the heritability has been overestimated), and age differences or developmental factors.
