GinofQuote: "p45 - Finally, neither genes nor family environment accounts for a substantial portion of the variation in complex human behavioral traits." So, is anyone else curious as to what does? As the father of a 10 month old son, I am! I hope he answers this laterI think he does, but the best in depth answer is found in Harris, Judith: The Nurture Assumption. Short answer: It's peers. If you make yourself really small, you can externalize virtually everything. Daniel Dennett, 1984
