Title: Individual Differences and the Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences
Lead Author: Hibbing, John R.
Abstract: The central thrust of the Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences during the next decade and beyond should be the extent to which people falling roughly in the normal or non-clinical range are physiologically and cognitively distinct from each other. Whether the source is genetic, early development, or more traditional environmental conditions, these differences are likely to have implications for all of the disciplines relevant to the social, behavioral, and economic sciences. An appreciation of this behaviorally-relevant physical and cognitive diversity would transform understanding of a variety of vexing problems, including political violence and an absence of trust in other people. Studying these variations properly will require interdisciplinary training, continued refinements of instrumentation, and a willingness to fund projects demonstrating creative applications of biological techniques and theories in order to come to grips with the rich diversity of human traits affecting the social, behavioral, and economic sciences.
