    The 100th Monkey effect (legend or real?) leads some credence to this notion also.

    I do believe this, ptosis. Very fascinating look at the power of trauma and how it is passed on through generations. Of course the nature-nurture controversy can affect it and actual exposure to trauma, but I think there is truth to this phenomenon.
