  • Warrior Gene

    This may have been addressed before...how does one find out what it is? Is there a test for this? Is it really of any significance?

    I doubt that there is such a gene, the warrior clans probably comprised of a genetically diverse group of peoples, being a warrior is more of a culture issue

      Thanks Pincera. I think I read on the forum a while back that there are people who have an aggressive chromosome or something like that. I'll do a google on it.

        I just read on FT home page about the warrior gene. So there is an actual test for $99.00.

          I am sure that I have also seen such a gene advertised it seems more like a marketing ploy than a real test, if we wait long enough there could be a test for the Cooking or Footballing gene coming along.

          It comes back to the old question of nature or nurture, would you be a warrior simply because of your genes or would you come a warrior because of the culture which you were born into, probably a bit of both I think.

              Interesting articles however I don't think the findings of the research are accurately described by the label "Warrior Gene"
