It's naive to think your genetics don't play a large role in who and what you become:

Personality? Genetics affect how confident you are, leadership ability, alcoholism, and even whether you get married.

Politics? Your DNA influences which party you support, how partisan you are, whether you vote, and the intensity of your beliefs.

Money? Your genes affect whether you're a cheapskate, how you invest, and if you'd be a good Wall Street trader.

Living past 100 is very much due to hereditary factors.
