Surprising Study Reveals Why Some People Are Jerks

Some people are generous--others, not so much. Why is that?


A new study from Switzerland suggests that the answer to that question may be a matter of neuroanatomy, with the brains of altruistic types having more "gray matter" in a region of the brain known as the temporoparietal junction.


It's the first study to show a clear link between brain structure and altruism, according to a written statement released by the University of Zurich.

In another thread I wrote this( got from a medical website)

Genes associated with sensation-seeking behaviors, such as drinking alcohol or gambling, also may be associated with sexual promiscuity and infidelity, according to a recent study.

The study focused on the DRD4 gene, which is associated with other behaviors linked with reward and feeling good.

People with a genetic variation of DRD4 called 7R+ were more likely to commit infidelity or be promiscuous; 50% of people with 7R+ reported being unfaithful, compared with 22% of people who did not have this genetic variation.



So I am actually not surprised why there is difference in behavior in each one of us.

But I wonder..can we alter this by making some modulator that makes that gene or variation in our brain lie in dormant state?

There was another study report yesterday that each sperm (from the same lot) has a different gene combination; the lucky one decides the nature of the individual.

The direction is clear; collect the sample in an auto segregator or online filter (like in a cigarette) to isolate the the best. All will become devas.
