if you didn't have the early influence instilled in you from your dads experimentations with electronics, music equipment and the hands on approach of your mom... would you still be you, now? would you had still be constantly fascinated and surrounded by electronics, would you be curious as now?
Probably I would have very different areas of interest, I think my childhood had a huge impact on this. But I also think I had a natural tendency to detail, curiosity, and geeky investigation. For example, I used to make lists and statistics about my toys and even characters in pretend play.
