Nature Vs. Nurture

Which Is More Important?

Parenting #1

I’m not sure what my child’s talents are, but I will just use a series of trials and errors and see how it goes.






Hidden Talent


If nature never meets the right nurture, the genes won’t be switched on,  and there will be no development.  The gift will be repressed and become a hidden talent.

Parenting #2

I understand that my child is not good in piano as compared to his peers, but I will give him the best school and the best teacher.






Partial – Outstanding


If we push our children to do things they are not endowed with, the effort has to be doubled, and there will only be partial development as there is no gene to switch on despite much hard work.  Your child will only stay at an ordinary level and that will affect his self-confidence.  We want our children to rise above mediocrity.

Parenting #3

Knowledge is power. Now that I understand what my child’s innate talents are through the ITGT, I will guide him accordingly..








If you have the nature and given the right nurture, you can become a genius!  It is no longer a question of Nature or Nurture, we should ask a more sophisticated question of whether we have a perfect match of nature AND nurture interaction in our child’s development.

What does your DNA tell about you?

Your DNA is the blueprint of life.  It determines everything from how you look to how you behave.  Understanding your genes gives you the ability to make better decisions in life by focusing on specific skill sets developed from your natural talents rather than taking on the ‘one-sized fits all’ approach to personal and childhood developments.

Career Profiling

Your Ideal Job

The Inborn Talent Genetic Test also includes a Career Profiling which serves as a reliable roadmap for you to plan your child’s path towards educational and career success.​ According to John Holland’s theory, most people are one of six personality types. The RIASEC groups people on the basis of their suitability for six different categories of occupations.

Your RIASEC code is a 3-letter combination of your top 3 dominance.

For example, if your RIASEC code is [SEC], it means that Social: your need for social interaction is most preferred. This is followed by Enterprising; a desire to initiate, lead and persuade people, and Conventional: your preference to work with data, structured work, established guidelines and SOPs.

The test results very accurately affirmed some of the traits my daughter has already been displaying like the various artistic ones, but it also highlighted others that I hadn’t noticed before. I’m sure as she gets older, she will display more of the strong traits that the test has mapped out. What really helps is that, now that I’m armed with this knowledge, I know how to enhance her activities accordingly and what to look out for in the future.

The test report also has detailed advice for me to nurture her talents without pushing her too much and allowing her to grow in her time. All in all, this has helped me understand my daughter better in a very scientific way and for that I’m very grateful.

I took an Inborn Talent Gene Test from Map My Gene recently because I found the test very fascinating as an insight into how people behave and excel differently. I was also curious about what my own DNA had to say about me in regards to my talents and abilities. When I saw the result, I was amazed at the high accuracy shown especially in Sports Category. I have got many sports genes that had made me an athlete and a minister in sports business now.

This is a priceless test that I figure all parents would want to have for their child. If I had the test done years ago when I was much younger, I would have developed and reached the full potential that I believe could catapult me to greater heights of success.

As a professional pilot, planning is paramount in my career – I employ the same philosophy for my children! I am happy with my decision to have my two children take the test as it has empowered me with the knowledge to plan and prepare for their future.

Looking back, I would have greater confidence and drive in achieving my goals had I taken the test when I was much younger. I have full confidence in my recommendation of MapMyGene to other parents to find the optimal path for their children.

ITGT Questions

What is the Inborn Talent Genetic Test?

The Inborn Talent Genetic Test (ITGT) is a scientific DNA test to reveal inherited and inborn talents of a child through the genetic makeup of his or her DNA that your child is born with. The test results help parents identify their children talents that may not be obvious at a young age but can be picked up from their genetic make-up.

How is the Inborn Talent Genetic Test performed?

We employ a painless and non-invasive procedure which does not involve blood when collecting DNA samples from our clients.  This simple procedure which takes only a couple of minutes is performed as follows:

Step 1: Order Online
Choose from our Inborn Talent or Disease Susceptibility DNA test. Your sample swab home kit will typically arrive within 5-7 days.
Step 2: Swab Sampling
Follow kit instructions to collect sample — all from home. Place the tube and consent form into the pre-paid envelope provided and mail it back to our sample collection point.
Step 3: Profiling Report
The samples will be tested in our lab and within a month, we will provide you with the conclusive DNA test report.

How is the Inborn Talent Genetic Test useful to me?

Knowing your child inborn talents allows you to effectively groom your child according to his/her natural inclinations. You can channel efforts and resources towards developing your child’s potential with more confidence. You no longer have to rely on guesswork, trial-and-error or fortune-telling. At the same time, you will also know what areas your child is not likely to excel in as your child is not naturally-inclined toward those areas.

The results of the tests offered by Map My Gene are known to be scientifically-proven to assert up to 99% accuracy.  Clients can be rest assured that Map My Gene will only offer tests that have met stringent standards of validity, consistency and accuracy.

Who should do this test?

Anyone! A DNA test can be performed at any age.

The ITGT provides valuable insights for individuals at any stage of career, emotional or personality growth. We recommend taking the ITGT as early in life as possible. Parents can give their children a head start in life when they can set a foundation to develop their children’s natural dispositions early.

Adults who find themselves at a career crossroad find it particularly useful to have an ITGT test done, as the career profiling aspect of the ITGT can help guide individuals towards careers they are most suited for according to their innate ability that they might not even be aware of.

Do I need to take the test again after some time?

Not likely. Genetic conditions are known to be very stable. Your DNA is unlikely to change over his or her lifetime. There is no need to test again for the same attributes.

Will my results from Map My Gene genetic tests be kept confidential?

Your test results will be kept very strictly confidential.  In fact, your sample will only be identified by a sample serial number throughout most of the testing process to ensure the confidentiality of your identity.

Your test results will not be willfully shared with any third party outside of Map My Gene. Even within Map My Gene, client details will only be revealed on a need-to-know basis and access to client details will be limited to only a select few employees who absolutely require the information to perform their work.
