When it comes to your child's personality do you think it's more nature or nurture?

I am the oldest of four girls and we couldn't be more different. My mom thinks it just nature of the beast. We are just born who we are...

To a degree, I believe it is nature, with nurture having some influence.

I would say both. My 3 kids have been raised exactly the same way and in a lot of ways they are very different, but in a lot of ways they are the same. My DS is very relaxes laid back kid and ODD is very high strung. They were both that way since the day they were born. That is their nature. However, all 3 of them are avid readers and it's something I instilled in them since they were babies that is a trait they got from nurture I thinks.

Both. We are not born blank slates, but we can be influenced by our enviroment.
