The first set of results does not necessarily suggest that personality isn't important, rather that reciprocity is a near-universal trait. This is fairly close to what most game theorists would predict. In fact, it suggests that personality might matter a lot, because the person who makes the first move sets the tone for all later interactions, since the later interactions are all governed by reciprocity.
