This is the biological side, the nature side. What's missing here is understanding all the stuff that gets turned on and off and why, hidden genes. There are also 'selfish' genes. What makes some types of people the 'type' to survive while others of the same type struggle, or is this last question more a 'nurture' question? It overlaps thus confounding us.
Wow that's pretty radical...
