      Very true. Where do you stand on the debate? I have mixed beliefs. I believe we can be genetically born a certain way and through reconditioning, or some form of neuroplasticity we can learn to change. I also think we can have certain habits and beliefs deeply ingrained in out subconscious mind. The positive ones we can hopefully learn to embrace & the negative ones perhaps we can discover ways to challenge, overcome & replace with something better. So it is my belief that we are both a little of each.

      I think some interaction goes on. We’re born with the tendency to develop a certain body shape, but nutrition and possibly exercise determine whether we reach the ideal potential shape, and so on. I think similar things happen with intelligence and personality traits.

      I agree with you there. Some things aren’t easy to change. But we can change anything about ourselves that we want to.
