Being "nice" may in part be due to your genes, according to a new U.S. study in the journal Psychological Science.



In "The Neurogenics of Niceness," published online on March 28, researchers at the University of Buffalo and the University of California, Irvine, found a connection between "kind" and "generous" behaviour of 711 study subjects, and versions of receptor genes for two hormones that have been associated with niceness in previous laboratory and close-relationship research.
