The heart is often seen as source of emotions, and personality traits.
A Study was conducted on patients who were transplanted over a period of 2 years. Nearly 80% patients reported that there is no change in personal traits after the heart transplant. Fifteen percent stated that there were some changes to their behaviour not because of the donor organ, but due to the life-threatening events they underwent during the transplant. Six percent reported a distinct change of personality due to their new hearts and they all told that they believed the age-old idea of the heart creates feelings and forms one’s personality.
