Shyness may be inherited

Did you hide your face into your mom's skirts while being introduced to strangers? Did adults describe you as being painfully shy?

Science never ceases to amaze me. Harvard researchers studied MRIs taken from a group of 22-year-olds who had been described as shy or outgoing based on their childhood behavior.

What's next? Brain sections that control the proclivity to spend money? The key to becoming a success in life? The gene for dancing or flexibility or speed?

And what happens to all of us who were born lacking these refinements?

How much faith do you place on science? And, given the opportunity, would you load your children with genetic enhancements?
