Our personality is around 50% nature, and 50% nurture. Our genetic heritage is like a seed, and it evolves in permanent interaction with thousands of macro and micro experiences, that surround us from the womb onwards. Our environment, education, culture, they all determine to a deep extent the way in which the seed of our personality finally develops. The traits we want to accentuate, to show, the ones we try to hide or repress. The result is a singular combination of nature and nurture that makes each of us unique and unrepeatable.
