Transcript of Nature vs. Nurture

How did you, become YOU? The route through childhood is shaped by many forces, and it differs for each of us. Our biological inheritance, the temperament with which we are born, the care we receive, our family relationships, the place where we grow up, the schools we attend, the culture in which we participate, and the historical period in which we live—all these affect the paths we take through childhood and condition the remainder of our lives.

–Robert H. Wozniak Nature vs. Nurture
What is it all about?
What is the idea? Nature ... * Nature is believed to be what determines our personalities, looks, and other things because it's all genetically passed down Nurture ... *Genes are what give us that individuality to our personality; the environment has the power to alter it Psychologist Donald Hebb is said to have once answered a journalist's question of "which, nature or nurture, contributes more to personality?" by asking in response, "Which contributes more to the area of a rectangle, its length or its width?" Um ... What? The Debate Gets Ugly ... The Story of Daniel Petric

-Preacher's son
-Well rounded-home From your own point of view, which side do you think is more prominent when it comes to the development of an individual? Do you think the time period (when the individual was born) has an affect on the person they become? What other things may have an affect on the people we may or may not become? After my in-depth research on the debate of Nature vs. Nurture, I have come to my own personal conclusion: they both have strong affects on each and every one of us. It is inevitable that we inherit certain things from our parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, etc., but I believe it is also inevitable to be affected in some way by the environment around you. Each factor plays a role in making each person on Earth the individual they are. If there really is one answer to this controversy, much more research will have to be before a final decision is made.
