Take my word for it the research below shows a complete consensus that individuals with the heterozygous s allele at 5HTT (our putative Perfectionism gene) are very sensitive to their environments. They are better with good environments and worse with bad ones.
This is also true of MAOA low activity, one of our putative Aggression trait genes. And it's true for DRD4 7R (a possible N or A gene) and for DRD2 taq 1A1, possibly in LD with one of our non-Narcissism candidate genes.
Wow, we are beginning to get some real insight into the age-old mystery of why some individuals seem to thrive in spite of profound lifelong adversity and some individuals seem to be unable to cope even in the "best" of life circumstances.
