Paternal Influence on Talent Development.
Werts, Charles E.; Watley, Donivan J.
A sample of college freshmen (N=127,125) was grouped by father's occupation. Fathers' occupations were then compared in terms of the probability of the sons and daughters having attained various types of achievements--scientific, artistic, oral-leadership, musical, and literary--in high school. The results indicated that sons and daughters excel in particular skills which the father uses in his occupation. (Author)
