Genetics versus Environment. There long has been debate about whether genetics or environment is more responsible for people becoming what they are. Fortunately for mankind, I now am able to definitively solve this riddle.
I was cast in two projects this week. One is a physician for a commercial. I took two days of organic chemistry in college (why I went back for a second day is a complete mystery). Organic chemistry convinced me that law, not medicine, was in my future. However, my father and uncle were physicians, and my brilliant, beautiful, perfect niece is a physician. So obviously, it was genetics that got me the role.
The other role is for a television news anchor. No one in my family had a broadcast journalism background. However, I spent many years as a television news anchor. So obviously, it was environment that got me this role.
So when anyone asks if genetics or environment is more responsible for people becoming what they are, you confidently can answer, “Yes.”
Glad to be of service.
