Parental genetics are far more important than parenting style in determining what kind of person you turn out to be.

And the "nurture" that matters is your peers, not your parents.

Skeptical? I highly recommend this book-length treatment of the research literature: https://www.amazon.com/Nurture-Assumption-Children-Revised-U...

Unless they are doing twin & adoption studies (hard!), attachment researchers are conflating parenting practices (these warm and loving parents had a warm & loving kid!) with genetics.
