However, if one posits that Mexico is a sanguine society, virtually all subjects in both the case and control groups would have the N trait, Thus, the differences in A-related genes would not be the entangled result of a difference between trait N in the two groups.
See our posting:
In general, the possibility of the entanglement of the two personality traits is something that has not yet been recognized by the research community. Note that this issue necessarily arises whether or not one is aware of the NPA model, and that researchers could easily be led astray. (As far a I'm aware, a comparable case of entanglement of two traits has not been reported in any branch of genetics).
In the posting above, we considered the case where the trait "smiling" was measured in a case-control study in a non-sanguine habitancy, and the result was that between the two groups there was a significant difference in the frequency of... trait A!
