Lenzenweger (2003, this issue) objected to my suggestion that Lenzenweger and Korfine (1992) interpreted their taxometric study as support for Meehl's (1962, 1990) single major gene model of schizophrenia. I suggest in this brief response that my representation of Lenzenweger and Korfine was consistent with the statements they had made. However, I do welcome the clarification that there are alternative explanations for the manifest class taxon identified by Lenzenweger and Korfine (e.g., see Widiger, 2001) and I would encourage future taxometric studies to explore these alternatives.
