Abstract

The goals, prospects and methods of the Longitudinal Israeli Study of Twins (LIST) are described. This study is interested in children's prosocial development from phenotypic, genetic and environmental perspectives. It focuses on measuring prosociality with a multi-trait multi-method approach, and relating it to children's general cognitive and sociocognitive abilities, and to parenting in the family. Other variables of interest such as children's temperament and parental values are discussed, as are ideas for further research.
