In brief: Likely yes, but...
Most of what makes us up is hereditary.
What varies is which genes one inherits from mother's or father's side, and then how many generations the trait goes back...To the beginning of mankind. I also believe that cultural or tribal traits over thousands of years become part of our genetic makeup. (so don't think faults or hurts come from upbringing: take what ur dealt and make the most out of it.
