I guess it is both, really. You can see why DH and I have been batting this around for a while. There are a lot of pieces to the discussion. DH was very quick to say, "Not teachable at all-- kids are born coachable or not," and this was his experience as a coach and a teacher. I am thinking of it more of an developmental and evolving skill set, that is certainly affected by inborn personality.
