Bouchard, Jr. is a professor of psychology and director of the Minnesota Center for Twin and Adoption Research, University of Minnesota. His longitudinal studies of twins reared apart are world-renowned. He was the president of the Behavior Genetics Association in 1993 and the American Psychological Association Distinguished Scientist Lecturer in 1995. Bouchard received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley en 1966. En 1979, Bouchard came across an account of a pair of twins (Jim Springer and Jim Lewis) who had been separated from birth and were reunited at age 39. "The twins," Bouchard later wrote, "were found to have married women named Linda, divorced, and married the second time to women named Betty. One named his son James Allan, the other named his son James Alan, and both named their pet dogs Toy." Bouchard arranged to study the pair, assembling a team and applying for a grant to the Pioneer Fund in 1981, stating, "Our findings continue to suggest a very strong genetic influence on almost all medical and psychological traits." This work became the Minnesota Study of Identical Twins Reared Apart (MISTRA), better known as the Minnesota Twins Project. Time, Estados Unidos. News and World Report, los New York Times, and various TV programs have reported Bouchard’s conclusions that shyness, political conservatism, dedication to hard work, orderliness, intimacy, extroversion, conformity, and a host of other social traits are largely heritable. Bouchard and his team have published about 130 papers detailing their findings, and the project is generally considered the most important twin study ever done. En 1994 el era uno de 52 signatarios en "Ciencia convencional sobre inteligencia," un editorial escrito por Linda Gottfredson y publicado en el Wall Street Journal, que defendió los hallazgos sobre raza e inteligencia en The Bell Curve.
