Julius says P gene = social dependence modifying N and A genes. If so it should be re-named the S trait. The classic P behaviour still stands unrefuted: orderliness/impulsiveness, neatness/sloppiness, rules-making/disorder, tenaciousness/submission etc.
So now we must have the big Four, according to Julius.
Donna is saying that the classic Persistence trait is not a separate gene at all, but simply an aspect of A. Lack of Persistence = A- or A=. This however muddles the positive P trait with the positive A trait: an obsessively dominant behaviour is not the same as obsessive attention to detail.
Unless Donna accepts Julius's novel S trait, then we must have the big Two, according to Donna.
It seems we have no agreement on the meaning of NPA. Or whether there are 2,3 or four principal genes.
