    the

    Which kind of person you are depends partly on experiences you’ve had
    and partly on your genes.

    Is it wrong without "the" before "experiences"? Please.

    Re: the

    "The kind of person you are depends partly on the experiences you've had and partly on your genes". However, I would say something like "The kind of personality you have depends up to a point on the experiences you've had and part of on your genes as well."

    Regards.

    It is OK with or without the "the." I would probably use it.

    It would be customary to use "the" here.
