The Orchid Hypothesis

I come across articles that might make for good pod-fodder all the time, so I thought I ought to start posting them here as potential starting points.

This article (The Science of Success) has some interesting ideas on gene-environment interactions as a sort of dual-strategy approach to life. One set of genes makes for people likely to do pretty well in most circumstances (the “dandelion” strategy), whereas another set of genes makes for people who will thrive like crazy given the right care–or, languish in ordinary circumstances (the “orchid” strategy).
