No study concludes that all of the variance is genetic in origin; in fact, the environment is the largest component of variance in most analyses. What is of interest is that the environmental variance tends to be nonshared, rather than shared. In other words, the environment works to make family members different from one another, rather than more similar. Some exceptions to this do exist. For example, some analyses of twins, especially in adolescent populations, show a shared environmental effect, suggesting that common friends, sibling imitation effects, or attributes of the neighborhood may be salient for aggression, primarily delinquency, in youth.
