Is Niceness Genetic?

I stumbled upon an interesting story about “the nice person gene” this morning, and it got me thinking … are some people just nicer than others because they’re wired that way?

In today’s world, it seems many people are so concerned with themselves and how to personally benefit or get ahead. It’s kind of reassuring to think that some people are just genuinely good, kind people (I’m lucky enough to have a few of them in my life) – even if environment does still play a factor in it.

  1. I know my Grandpap was a kind and gentle man, like my Dad. Hoping I taught you compassion and some kindness, Golden Rule applies to everyday. I grew up that way. [So you know you didn’t get that from your Dad 😉 ] Giving that road crew Popsicles on a hot day made my day and theirs. It’s an easy thing to do.
