    Re: Is Laziness Genetic?

    Pretty sure it's mostly a learned behavior. I'm adopted and share most of the same social and cultural norms and worth ethic as my father - there is no possible way for it to be genetic.

    Your non-sarcastic response to an opinion, not a research theory, has intrigued me.

    Re: Is Laziness Genetic?

    The more important question is, can I go on disability for it?

    Yes, but unfortunately it would require a lot of effort.

    Put me in the no camp by the way. I think people will generally do what is expected of them, and so I think it is a learned behavior.

    You mean except for the scientific proof thing from the article. There's also a lot of different health issues that could be passed on that affect a persons energy levels such as Hypothyroidism.
