Yes, fears and phobias are examples of low heritability behavior. For example, fear of people and noise phobias which are considered learned behavior. High heritability behavior is often innate - feeding behavior, prey behavior, elimination behavior, and breed-related behavior such as herding and hunting. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
