Do you think the love we have of some things is genetic or is it instilled in us growing up?
Are somethings we love genetically handed down for generations or is it instilled in us while we are growing up? Not all of us have the same wants, desires, and "love" of such things as pets, sports, careers as our parents and ancestors, so so you think that some of it is genetically passed on?
You know, that's actually a pretty interesting question, I'm not sure that has ever been researched; I guess you'll have to look. If I had to take a stab at it though, I would say that many of the things we like are inherit, we may pick up on same things from our parents. Just like you may inherit a parents natural ability for music, you may inherit their love of certain foods. I'm sure there are many cases where a love of something is instilled from childbirth though, I grew around my Dad loving Spider-Man, comic books, and drawing; as I grew older I noticed that I loved them all just as much. Is it a coincidence? Perhaps, but I guess we'll never know will we?!
