Does a soul get to choose the body in which it will be reborn?

[A question by Śrī Anil]

Swami replied: The psychology of the soul consisting of the specific combination of good and bad qualities causes the soul to be born in a specific place in a specific body, which are congenial to its psychology. Similarly, when God incarnates, His wish decides the place and body of the devotee.
