Is hoarding a mental disorder that is passed from generation to generation, or a learned trait?


This is a debate in my family. Some believe that extreme frugal living/hoarder is a mental disorder that is passed from generation to generation, while others think it is a learned trait that can be fixed. I am curious to see what would trigger it and how others helped their family members, or themselves.
