    Chimpanzees Show Similar Personality Traits to Humans -- ScienceDaily

    Researchers have found that chimps can have their personalities classified in ways that are remarkably like human personalities. Dominance, sociability, extroversion/introversion, intellect etc. Are these traits genetic?

    I'd assume they were genetic. I'm curious whether or not the chimps in captivity will learn social skills/basic engineering (ways to escape the zoo enclosure and just from seeing the staff/visitors using tools) at an accelerated rate compared to their wild counterparts. I read Dragons of Eden recently, and I recall reading something even in the 70s, that inquired why chimps were not given certain human rights. Someday they'll be eating not bananas...but banana splits...

    Chimps are nasty, evil little creatures.

    Which ones are the nice ones, are they the Bonobos?

    Bonobos are the hippy chimps that do the free love and communism thing.

    Yes, they do have much in common with humans.

    This isn't necessarily news, being that we have known bonobos to be our closest relatives for a while. It is yet a fascinating topic to look into!
