Sally and Ann are sisters. They’re different ages, but they’ve both got fair hair and brown eyes. Physically they are very similar, but their characters are completely different. Sally’s always talking and joking, but Ann is more serious. She’s happy when she’s reading a book. “They’re like chalk and cheese”, says Alice, their mother. Ann has got her father’s character. She’s quiet and shy, but Sally is loud and extrovert. Sally goes out a lot, but Ann prefers to stay at home and study. They go to the same school, but they´ve got different friends. Why have Sally and Ann got very different characters? Experts say that only 50 per cent of our personality comes from our genes. Every person has got a different mix of genes. Perhaps you’ve got your mother’s eyes and your grandfather’s eyebrows and your grandmother fantastic character! The other 50 per cent of our personality depends on our experiences. Many different things influence us: our home life, our school, our friends and the TV, for example. When we are young We often imitate people and their actions.
