Do they? I mean I found some articles on the net.
e.g
http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9A0DE1DC1E30F931A35751C1A960948260&sec=health&spon=&pagewanted=all

I find it hard to believe and I also refuse to believe that I inherit personality traits from my parents.

That's like the second worst thing after I learned about reproduction.

Of course, it's in your genes.

I don't believe it's in your genes. I think people act similar to their parents because as a child you grow up watching them. Therefore, you mimic alot of their actions and ideas.

All you need to know is:

1. Classical conditioning
2. Operativ conditioning
3. Observative learning

shape a child's behavior and preference of action for the future.

I think it is, but I agree with you, most of it is influence while you're growing up.

Yes, everybody inherits at least a few traits, there's just no getting around that. But you're still your own person.
