Abstract: Self-counsellingconcept of “Gravitation” is developed applying meta-research findings of behavioural genetics from different genetic research studies based on quantitative as well as molecular genetic methods and mechanisms which estimates: a) heritability, b) shared and c) non-shared environmental influences and suggests how epigenetic[1]factors may operate and include endophenotype[2] representing intelligence at a level closer to the genotype[3], provided through families, twins and adoption (Plomin et al., 2008). Meta-research findings of behavioural genetics allow specifying more precisely the role of a priori (genotype or “core self”, potential) in interplay with a posteriori (environment[4]) in self-construction[5] process of social self (phenotype[6] or experience[7], actual). Nevertheless, Plomin et al. (2013) warn: “During the 150 years since Galton’s first papers, the pendulum has swung back and forth between nature and nurture in the behavioural sciences. After World War II, psychology was dominated by learning theory and an environmentalism that assumed that we are what we learn. However, by the 1960s and 1970s, the pendulum began to swing back towards a more balanced view that recognized the importance of nature as well as nurture. With the breath-taking advances in genetics in recent years, there is some danger now that the pendulum may be swinging too far back to nature” (p. 1). Developing self-counselling concept of “Gravitation” this warning was always taken at stake
