    Evidently.


    • More anxiety (TT) [R].
    • Introversion, depression resistant, impaired motor skills learning (TT) [R].
    • Introversion [R, R2]: the T allele is prevalent amongst Asians, which might explain increased introversion amongst Asians. [R].
    rs6265

    The "depression resistant" part sounds good.

    Speaking for myself, I was just posting that I was CC and introverted. I wasn't claiming that my introversion was due to the CC result. I was just saying that I'm an introvert with this result. Like most traits in people, it is likely that there are multiple genes that cause introversion rather than just one. Traits are generally a consequence of a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

    I am C / C for the SNP rs6265.

    In real life I am undoubtedly an introvert.

    Right, which is what I said.

    If you have CC and you're introverted, it isn't due to rs6265. It's due to something else like childhood trauma or some other experiences that caused you to want to withdraw into yourself.

    But in terms of rs6265, T is the allele for introversion.

    Okay, I was mostly writing that post in response to this:
    ^ lol so this means many members who thought they scored introvert actually scored extrovert
    I was just responding to the assumption that people like me thought that we scored introvert when we actually scored extrovert. I never thought that I scored introvert but was merely saying that I am an introvert.

    However, I would argue that there could be another gene or other genes for introversion that we don't know about rather than it necessarily meaning that my introversion is purely due to childhood trauma or other experiences.

    Okay, but this thread is about rs6265, and the T allele there is the risk allele for introversion.

    So, if one says, "I am CC and an introvert", in a thread like this one, the implication is that C is the source of the introversion.

    Probably it would have been better to have said, "I'm CC but introverted anyway".

    I'm CT at rs6265. I'm mostly an introvert, but I do what I have to do, and that includes dealing with large groups of people. I don't like crowds; I'd rather avoid them, but I can even do public speaking when called upon to do it.

    Sorry, I just assumed that everyone who has read the thread already knew what the alleles meant. I didn't think that an explanation was necessary. I was just comparing the result to my actual personality.

    My mum is CT as well. I'd say that she probably is a mixture. She'll happily be in crowds and have no hesitation in approaching people she knows while being able to easily strike up a conversation. She'll be able to chat easily with strangers as well. I would think that most people see her as an extrovert. However, she claims that she was quiet when she was younger. She's also content to just stay in at home with the family without feeling the need to go out and socialise. She hates public speaking and would never volunteer to do a reading for mass, for example. She has lots of friends but just one who she would talk to most days. My dad is definitely an introvert. He only speaks with his brother regularly outside our own family. He's very happy being in his own corner and doesn't go to many events. He had no desire for going out to dances once he got married. He often quotes one of his friends who was at the dances after being rejected that "I'm tired, battered and shy." There'd be other people who he's friendly with but they'd only ever meet up in relation to work. His DNA data has no information for tat SNP.

    I'm actually surprised that AA is linked with depression resistance. I would have assumed to introverted people would tend to be more susceptible to depression than their extroverted counterparts since they're generally stuck in their head while extroverts would seem less likely to dwell on pessimistic thoughts. However, it does say that the "A allele may also be protective against depression when subjected to repeated defeat." I suppose that is a different thing altogether. I can see why an introvert might be more resilient to repeated knocks and setbacks compared to extroverts. However, AG actually has slightly increased risk for ADHD or depression compared to GG.
