just they won't admit it.

I'm fully aware that I have physical and mental traits that make me behave in a similar manner as my parents.
Oh yes, very aware.

You can inherent certain personality traits from your parents. The whole nature versus nurture thing is a always a lovely debate. Typically a persons temperament is genetically received.

both genetic and social, have an impact. just you typical biological vs situational psychology argument.

I don't think it's learned from out parents but learned. I don't think I'm like my parents in any way.

Some people do, some people don't. I'm nothing like any of my family members (I have over 40 that live near me, all of whom I know well, and countless others across the country, and I can safely say I'm not a loud, ignorant, Christian-Nazi like them), but my sister acts a lot like my mom.

It saddens me to see how many people think personality is related to genes. I wonder how many of them could describe which personality traits are dominant and which are recessive, which ones are linked (if any), or if any of those people even know what an allele is.
