Do people change?
Humans...are born with our neurology in a very undeveloped state. I think it is this that allows our brains to...sort of imprint on the culture around us. Also on our family. So as we become mature, it does become more difficult to change who we are...as our habits and preferences are literally wired into the structure of our brains. But...we still have neurogenesis occurring as adults. So it is possible to change. In our evolutionary past, adaptability was selected-for. Personality can change radically over a lifespan. Now...there is a catch to that. Twin studies seem to show that there are innate proclivities to like certain things. I think one is influenced by genetics. Humans are no blank slate. Still, we're evolved to be able to change ourselves as required.
