They found the dancer gene!

No seriously.

Apparently, I have an awesome serotonin transporter and arginine vasopressin receptor 1a. Which means that, opposed to other people (including athletes), I am of the dancer "type" which is: 

"a heightened sense of communication, often of a symbolic and ceremonial nature, and a strong spiritual personality trait."

That doesn't sound like me at all. ;)

Though I'm curious about how they tested dancers against athletes. I would like to see a comparison with dancers and other artists, who I think we'd actually have more in common with than athletes.

I guess this gives a different take on people who were "born to do something"? Very cool :D

I certainly am not into what I first got into. I am into everything I have ever gotten into, and it's kind of takes a bit out of my sanity. I love dancing, I love singing, I love drawing, I love sculpture and many other forms of art, I love cooking and creating in the kitchen. I love a lot of other things too, haha.

My problem is I has too many things I am passionate about, yet my "career" doesn't include anything remotely like anything I am passionate about... Which is likely why I hate it so much, but I have so many things I am good at, but nothing that Iam GREAT at or that I love more than the other, so it has been ridiculously hard for me to pick one to work at being great at and make it my career...

I wonder what genes I ended up with?
