Does Predisposed Mean Predestined?

I love to learn about our world. I love to learn about the world that is my body. And brains are fascinating. So are genes, and inheritance, and habits…

My favorite kind of learning involves stories, which make me an avid listener to Moth Radio Hour. On April Fool’s Day all four stories related to STEM (Science/Technology/Engineering and MATH). The second one especially intrigued me because it dealt with our genes, our brains, and mental illnesses such as depression or bi-polar. I invite you to listen to the second story in which Lone Frank explains that¬†predisposition does not necessarily mean predestined.
