>>…Take for instance, narcissism. Plenty of people are that way. Did they choose it? NO! We were born this way. I never saw a signup sheet come around. So it is genetic! But I am even weirder: a really humble narcissist. spike
>…Well now, genetic but not inevitable. Genes tend to account for only about half the variance or less in psychological traits. Learning counts; environment counts. Maybe even will power counts. I was genetically disposed to like alcohol and tobacco, and I now use neither, and it wasn't really all that hard to quit. I can even be extroverted for short periods of time, like one class period, though two in a row made me hyper.
Ja! My willpower is so mighty, I brutally overcame my narcissism by sheer force. Now I am so humble I can’t stand myself.
