5 Traits You Didn't Know Were Genetic!

We know our genetics play a leading role in many aspects of our life. From the way we look, what diseases we're prone to, & even parts of our personality. However genetics can play a even deeper role. In this list we'll be showing you 5 traits you probably didn't know where genetic. We would like to give a big shoutout to viewer The Driver for suggesting this video. --------------------SECOND CHANNEL------------------- Check out my second channel More5! for funny, weird, interesting news, along with the latest trending topics within the YouTube community.

However with that being said, some of us are more prone to violence purely due to our genetics. Researchers in Finland took a genetic analysis of about 900 criminals and have found that two genes are associated with making people violent. They came to the worrying conclusion that people who carry these two genes, were 13 times more likely to have a background of violence. Now although this does suggest that violence is partly genetical, other aspects do come into play. Things like social environment especially in the childhood can play a huge role on how someone will be when they grow up. Children surrounded by frequent violence do tend to be more violent adults. 4) Music Taste Your music taste is partially down to your genetics. Scientists did a study of 4,000 twins and noted that for people under 50, genetic influence of music taste is about 55 percent. Thus, genes have a bigger influence on music taste compared to environmental factors before the age of 50. As people grow older though, environment has more of an influence. For people over 50, genetics only has about a 40 percent influence while environment accounts for the other 60 percent. Pretty interesting, as I always thought music taste was purely down to environmental & social factors. 3) Mate Selection If you're attracted to someone, a lot more is going on that what you actually think. Sure, modern aspects such as job, lifestyle, interests all play a role, but the pure animalistic attraction is down to your genetics. It comes down to something called the major histocompatibility complex or MHC. In short scientists have discovered that people are more attracted to someone with different MHC genes. This is thought to be a purely evolutionary, as couples who have different genetics in general create healthier children. It also prevent inbreeding. If you're attracted to someone with different genes to you, there's less chance of any inbreeding occurring & thus the children having a better chance to be more genetically healthy. 2) Driving Skills There's a gene about 30% of people have that makes then not such good drivers & it is genetic. The gene releases improper amounts of BDNF which is a protein in the brain. BDNF assists in retaining memory and is essential to the communication between brain cells. Thus, it’s much harder to get better at driving because it’s much harder to retain driving skills through practice. However if you follow the rules of the road, and always concentrate when driving, regardless of this gene you can still be a very safe driver. 1) Laziness Some people are just very lazy, and they will probably be very happy to hear that their genetics may be to blame. Researchers discovered laziness genes when they bred two groups of rats. They bred the most active rats and the least active rats. As the generation of rats grew, the rats with the active parents ran longer and longer while the rats with the less active parents didn't run nearly as much. The researchers accounted for many factors including physical characteristics, muscle cells, levels of mitochondria, etc. But, they found that the biggest reason for their activity and inactivity was a set of around 36 genes that accounted for their motivation to exercise. So what this means is next time your parents tell you to clean your room, you can blame them for giving you the "lazy gene".
