    I would also argue birth order matters a great deal. I hate Nature vs. Nurture discussions because both sides are right.
    Completely agree.

    Nature or Nurture - it's always gonna be a combination of both.

    Re: Is Laziness Genetic?

    I work in a school and see the parents of my lazy kids but its hard to say if the kids are lazy because they aren't parented or if their parents are genetically lazy pieces of ****.

    Re: Is Laziness Genetic?

    Laziness is an enabled and learned characteristic that I believe is more associated with the family paradigm as opposed to genetics. Laziness is a matter of will power, which is most often driven by one or more of the following: necessity, motivation, or a lack of consequence.

    But some put a lot of effort into doing as little as possible. Pathetic and classless is what I'd call those people before I'd call them lazy.

    Re: Is Laziness Genetic?

    I would say almost every single human behavior and tendency is genetic is some way. Any disposition to be active or inactive or be anything really has at least a little dependence on genetics.

    So yes, but who knows how much.

    Re: Is Laziness Genetic?

    I almost didn't respond to this thread, but then thought, "I bet my parents wouldn't either".

    So I decided to end the pattern of familial laziness here and now!

    Whew, now I can nap for the rest of the day.

    Honey, bring me a twinkie, will ya?


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.
