### About 20 - 30% of most psychological traits (personality, IQ, various
disease risks) is environmental or stochastic, while the remaining 70 - 80%
is genetic. So yes, the game of life is to a large extent but not
completely predetermined. However, I wouldn't say that the brain doesn't
have the ability to recondition itself - while it does rely on a lot of
prewired structure for various basic processing tasks, the highest levels
of our cognition are much more responsive to new knowledge and allow us to
rise above the level of automata.
