Does the idea of innate personality violate the principle of "tabula rasa"?

In past shows, you've indicated that you think that some aspects of personality are innate, rather than acquired by experience. If that's right, isn't that a form of determinism? Moreover, wouldn't it violate the principle that every person is born a "blank slate"?

You are born a blank slate but the type of slate you are is predetermined.
