I love this. I have a friend who has never had a single eye color change during her entire life. Not even a hair color change. For the longest time I thought it was just genetics, but her mom told me that eye color changes for her mother and father were both the same eye color and that the daughter had inherited it from her mother.
That’s right, the same eye color as the daughter’s mother. This is an important point because it shows there’s a connection between genetics and mood. One of the oldest psychological studies shows that personality changes with mood. If you put someone on a bad mood, they tend to get sad and withdrawn. If you put them on a good mood, they tend to get excited and sociable. A person who is more sociable and outgoing tends to have a happier personality.
This is a good example of how genetics are sometimes linked to mood. One of the best-known studies of that connection is a 1999 article in the journal of Personality and Individual Differences. The study found that the personality of people with identical genes for depression tended to be consistent with the depressed moods of their relatives who had the same genes.
Although this study was based on a large sample of people with identical genes, it doesn’t mean that people with the same genes don’t experience mood swings. This is because genes that express one mood can also express another mood. So it is possible that people with a certain gene expression can have a mood that is more balanced between happiness and sadness. It’s like the difference between a person with the same genes and a person with different ones.
Now the question becomes whether there are mood-related genes that are more expressed when an individual is happy or sad. Because people with a certain gene pattern will also have a certain gene expression.
I don’t know, and I don’t really care. The point is that most of our experiences, moods, and emotions are the result of a complex interplay between genetics and experience.
It seems that happiness is a genetic trait. The genes that make us more likely to develop certain behaviors, personalities, and emotional states are a bit more likely to come up in happy times. It turns out that a person’s emotions are more influenced by genetics than by the environment. However, genetic differences in how we express happiness and sadness are only significant for people who have been exposed to certain conditions, like stress.
This is why we humans have such strong emotions that can make us act in ways we’d not normally act. For example, if I were to meet someone for the first time and they were happy, I’d probably want to give them the maximum amount of attention. On the other hand, in the same situation, if I were to encounter someone who is sad, I’d probably want to give them as little attention as possible.
In our study, we found that people with more positive affective states have a higher risk of depressive episodes, which is why I say that life is a lot like a roller coaster. There are ups and downs, and some of them are so negative that it can make you feel really bad.
A great way to keep your mood steady is to take a look at your mood regularly. Mood is a complicated thing, but if you ask me, I think it is best to think of it from the perspective of the day. Your mood (or lack thereof) is determined by a combination of what you have for breakfast, what you have for lunch, what you are doing for work, and when you go home.
