Happy Leap Day! And I think that my children influenced my personality!

For a while, I thought nurture had a lot to do with it. Now that I have kids, I thought 'nature' - because they both seemed to be born with their own, very distinctive personalities. I called them my 'slot machine babies' because it seemed to be a pull of the slot handle - you get 3 cherries, 2 7's and an olive, whatever.... But now I really think it is a mixture of both nature and nuture. However, I remember feeling the way I feel about life from a very young age - call it my nature. But then I know the life I had growing up was a very strong influence - in my self-confidence, ability to trust, etc... So to answer your question of what influenced my personality, I believe I was born with my personality, but then it was shaped by my environment and influences growing up. I hope I can provide the same for my kids - positive, nurturing and happy so they are self-confident and sensitive and intellectually curious.

I think it really is the unique interaction of someones temperament combined with their experiences that shapes their personality.
Even with siblings, they are born as different individuals, and then they experience things in a different way and viewpoint then ourselves. Lately, when I talk to my brother, we have been comparing stories of what went on in our family when we were rowing up, and boy, did we see different things!

I imagine it's both. My sister and I grew up in the exact same household but ended up with different personalities. We were different even as young children.

I believe people are mostly influenced by nature since people these days look at status or class like what shoes or clothes people are wearing. A rich person barely likes to communicate with middle or low class people since they have been influenced by nature. I had a friend once that was rich and barely hung out with me due to my class since also when she met a poor person she would act scared of them.

In the early years, nature. As time progressed, however, nurture took over and my personality was shaped by life experience.
