This chapter describes different ways in which aggression, rule breaking, and unusual behaviors are defined. This is followed by a discussion on the many approaches to identifying genetic influences on these definitions. After a brief introduction and literature review, the chapter outlines common quantitative measures of unusual behavior, describes the development and subtypes of unusual behavior, and examines behavioral genetic studies of unusual behavior. It also analyzes aggression and unusual behavior from a perspective of twin and adoption studies, as well as of familial variable studies.

Keywords:   aggression, rule breaking, unusual behaviors, genetic influences, familial variable studies, genetic studies
