No.
I think it's the parents job to mold them into the right direction. Lack of discipline creates a monster child. Horrible parents create a monster child. Abusive parents create abusive children. If let's say down the road the child is now a teenager or young adult then during that time the child can either retaliate or put into motion everything their parent has talked them.

I think we are all born with our personality type. Its what our parents do with it that makes all the difference. My son and I are both hot headed - I have taught him how to handle it so he is not violent where my mother and I would get into major battles.

I think we are born to be a certain way but our parents and surroundings help also. A lot of things are taught as well.

this wont be popular but yes. absolutely. my 3 year old is not my first child, he was my 4th. he was destructive and "mean" from the getgo, not a damn thing i could have done to change it. my other kids are nothing like him and i sure hope my 5th isnt either.

All children have to be taught not to be aggressive, so I think all of us are born with some level of aggression and wildness...

I've known aggressive and mean adults that were born to loving and attentive parents.

It's part what they are born with and part how they were raised. Sometimes it only takes one, but alot of times it's both, at least in my opinion.

Some kids have more aggression than others, but I think the difference is how they are (or are not) parented as children.

No. I think when the parents are aggressive the kids see those coping tools and use them themselves.
