This extremely short essay argues that it is not conceptually possible to separate a person's character from her experiences in the world. It was published by the Brookings Institution's Center on Children and Families as part of a series of essays on Character & Opportunity. (It is a distillation of a piece of the argument of the book Bottlenecks: A New Theory of Equal Opportunity.)
