“Genetic research shows that the medical model is all wrong when it comes to psychological problems.”
Robert Plomin, Blueprint, with a new afterword: How DNA Makes Us Who We Are

“Genetics, not lack of willpower, is the major reason why people differ in BMI. Success and failure, credit and blame, in overcoming problems should be calibrated relative to genetic strengths and weaknesses.”
Robert Plomin, Blueprint: How DNA Makes Us Who We Are

“Genetics is the major reason why people differ in personality, mental health and illness, and learning and cognitive abilities. In essence, the most important thing that parents give to their children is their genes. Your parents' systematic influence on who you are lies within the genes they gave you.”
Robert Plomin, Blueprint: How DNA makes us who we are
