“Who we are and what we become reflects the interplay of both genetic and environmental influences in an enormously complex choreography. It is time to put away the ‘How much?’ question because it cannot be answered simply. As the Canadian psychologist Donald Hebb noted long ago, it’s like asking, What’s the more important determinant of a rectangle’s size: it’s length or its width?”
