Penke et al. (this issue) state that there are no studies of inbreeding depression on personality. In this response to their paper, we look at the effect of parents being born in the same geographical region on personality in themselves and in their offspring. Results show that when parents come from the same region, both they and their offspring score lower on sensation seeking than when parents come from different regions. These results may suggest effects of inbreeding depression on personality. Copyright ©2007 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
