I'm sure environment plays a significant role, but the biological role is well documented.

I've updated the answer with more detail as to how the authors are explaining the how.

comment How are personality traits “encoded” in the brain?
How is still a matter of hypotheses. The authors introduce hypotheses in the beginning, but also reference literature (such as Depue & Collins). Encoded is probably not the right word though; "encoded" is used to describe lower processes like sensory processing well (rate coding, for example) but personality is more of an emergent property.

comment Super polymath feasibility: Is it possible to have the highest intellectual ability in every area?
I agree with this answer. With each additional measured trait, the probability of them simultaneously being in the 90th+ percentile for a single person approaches 0. So possible? Sure. Probable? Not very.
