I love that rush you get when the anger comes on, and I see "red" so I no longer drink (that is from my Mother's Irish side - my Grandfather O'Dwyer had the same issue). Anyway... I'm TT at the Rs6311 SNP (associated with higher stress response - more receptors - something like that) so it makes me wonder if I'm also TT for that
    HTR2B 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor 2B found in Finnish men for implusive behavior (don't worry I have a couple 5th cousin from Finland in my autosomal matches - though mainly I get Irish and Scots with a few Germans/Baltics). Couldn't find the rs number for the SNP for the HTR2B 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor 2B gene though in my autosomal results from FTDNA, but did find the rs6311 etc. Maybe one day we will figure out what makes us tick ;-). P.S. I had several psychologists tell me they think my brain doesn't produce enough serotonin - based on years of observed behaviors, and I am a different person when I take Prozac - which is an SSRI - stops the brain from taking back up the serotonin or something like that! Confusing! Maybe there is an SNP or ten for that issue :-)!

    Cheers!
    How are you different ?

    Then every oppressed person would be an overreacting individual who'd throw off the shackles of their oppressors. Supposedly 40% of the human population carries this gene, as in they possess it. More than 40% of the population, either due to the color of their skin, their religion, or their social status, falls into the category of oppressed one way or the other. So why hasn't there ever been some world spanning revolt?

    Because as I said earlier, and researchers have said, this singular gene is NOT the only thing responsible for activating the "warrior gene". There's also the very simple fact the so-called "warrior gene" is associated with risk taking and other factors that have nothing to do with oppression.

    Ahh Il PapÓ it took me a second realize what you meant, but then I saw the bolded part about how I'm different when I take prozac. Off the top of my head, I would say there is a big difference in personality when I take prozac, and when I have missed my doses (ran out of it usually!) and my friends and especially my wife immediately start to notice that I am much more moody, angry, willing to argue for many minutes about something that isn't really important, and I also push people's buttons in order to agitate them so they will fight with me (no full on fist fight with my wife or friends - good example would be get in a heated argument/fight about certain issues discussed today). With strangers - some times I can't work well with them if they are disrespectful because I also stand my ground and that can lead to confrontation and even fist fighting etc. I'm sure there are some more behaviors I do that I am forgetting, but generally I become a very moody, "I don't want to talk to anybody so f off" type.

    When I take prozac consistently it calms me down a lot in the sense that I don't fly off the handle so quickly... I stop and listen and think about the situation and if it's really worth getting in a conflict with someone? Not really... short of someone attacking you or a loved one or friend. I am much more able to be around people... even rude people... and I just ignore them and go on with my day. Off prozac - I immediately challenge them, tell them they are being rude and to f off... if they were rude to me or someone near me.

    I suppose those are good examples of how I'm "different" when I take prozac - it's certainly genetic because my father was the same way and we first found out the prozac worked very well for him... they tried it on me and blam! It worked! It's almost like when I'm not on prozac there is an intense pressure in my head... always wanting to force it's way out or make me aggressive and some times loosing my temper is almost like a sneeze reaction if that makes sense? I know it's starting to come on, but can't always stop it. It is kind of like that smoldering behind your eyes... constantly aggravated even when not talking to anyone... Prozac helps mellow that out and I feel more normal in that I can be relaxed a bit.

    Hope I answered your question there!

    Cheers,
    Charlie
