I try so hard not to act like them, but that really doesn't work. I have both of my parent's anger and sarcasm combined to make one heck of a mess........

I don't see why you wouldn't, after all you were made by them.

Neither me or my brother are anything like either of our parents.
I think that personality kind of has to do with your surroundings when growing up.

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.


that's about learning though, not necessarily personality. there's a difference

theres also this study about these identical twins raised in different families. one in vancouver, the other in montreal. they both became songwriters, though their style in music differed. the difference shows environmental influence, but their habits remained the same..

based on the study, i buy the whole personality being hereditary.

yup you do but i wouldnt think its has much to do with your genes, its more psychological. ill give a quick run down cause im tired and want to go bed. basically as we grow up we pick up and learn form our surroundings. we eventually copy things and look up to people. i cant bother to go on but its not from our parents it from whoever has brought us up, we just learn from their "traits".
