Nature Vs. Nurture
Nature Vs. Nurture
By: Hailee Hamer & Kelcie Lee

What is it?
This debate is about certain aspects of a behavior and whether they are inherited (genetic) or acquired (learned) characteristics.
Nature is inherited/genetic
Nurture refers to all environmental influences after exposure (experience)

Adoption studies include two sets of ideas
that may cause differences
in behavior, personality, psychopathology: biological parents and
environmental parents
What is it?
A brain disorder that can cause occupants to hear voices other people do not hear, believe other people are reading their minds, controlling their thoughts, or planning on harming them.
How does this relate?
Adoption is one example of nature vs. nurture. Regardless of whether or not you are raised by your biological or adoptive parents, the risk of obtaining the disorder is equal.
Infant Shyness
What is it?
When infants are more reserved around adult strangers
How does this relate?
Research shows that adopted-away children that are shy have biological mothers with a high shyness rate.
What is it?
The separation of marriage between two adults
How does this relate?
Studies have shown that divorce can cause negative affects on the children such as low self esteem, decreasing social and academic ability, emotional problems, substance use and loneliness.
Identical twins or monozygotic twins with genotypes that are duplicates of each other. They are a point of reference of whether or not biology affects characteristics and psychopathology in humans.
A study determined that heritability of attitudes of twins and genetic variables could affect the attitudes of twins.

The results of this study displayed that the differences between the attitudes were associated with these genetic factors.
Theory Of Mind
Studies have shown that non-shared environments has shown the most differences in the minds of twins.
Genotype-Environment interaction
Shared environments, verbal abilities, and genetics caused influence to decrease.
Genotype-environment interaction is basically whether or not people with different genetics act differently to the equivalent situation.
Family Studies
What is it?
Your risk of getting a disorder that runs in your family
Bipolar Disorder
Graph of a genotype-environment interaction
What is it?
A mental sickness that can cause dangerous behavior and mood swings.
How does it relate?
A studied demonstrated that bipolar disorder in immediate family gives you a higher risk to inherit the disease.
How does it relate?
For nurture family can influence you to commit suicide if they are abusive, strict, or non supportive. For nature, you friends or outside your family can also affect your decisions.
eating disorders
There was a study conducted that was trying to figure out if eating disorders were through family genetics. The results showed that there was a definite connection between a person who is suffering from it and a relative who has a high risk of getting it too.
