Re: Genetics (Dogrock)

0some behavior is determined by genetic structure.

there is a situation where people with a particular genetic makeup chew their own fingers.
it is a syndrome with a name that i forget right now.

there is another situation in which people with a particular genetic structure have a unique way of getting to a standing position from a sitting position. this is not aggression or fear but a particular behavior based on a genetic situation.this situation is found in Duchenne's muscular dystrophy.

unfortunately, some people will speculate and extrapolate that other behaviors are due to genetic reasons, without any scientific evidence.

there was a study done (not very scientifically thorough) that 'proved' that people with the genetic situation of having 'XXY' chromosome structure were more aggressive than those who did not have this genetic structure.
the study was incorrect.
