When it comes to the subject of “Nature vs. Nurture, I believe we will always have people who feel strongly about their beliefs in either side. I must say that I tend to come down on the side of nature. The more I learn on the subject, the more I’m convinced of people being born with certain behaviors and traits. The video was very interesting. I had no idea that men and women all started out with the same reproductive parts. It was amazing to watch the two organs start out the same and with the help of certain hormones becomes something totally different. I was truly amazed because things like this remind me that there is no way the big bang theory could have created the complex ways that the human body alone is created. I’m in awe of just how beautifully and wonderfully made we really are. It is a blessing to me to be born in this time that we live in. So many things can be explained threw science now that could not have been before. I believe if these parents were aware of all the damage it would do to both twins to go through with this ordeal, they would never have done it. I’m glad that this boy was ultimately told the truth and allowed to make the final decision of what sex he preferred to be. I’m sure it will always be a scar on his life, but to no longer have to deny his true feelings of being a male had to be a blessing. I believe that blind studies should not be allowed to be performed on anyone without there being witnesses to the experiments. The deception
hear, and what is taught to us. We are taught by our parents, by our teachers, by grandparents, by siblings, friends, ect.. but ultimately a parents wants there child to grow up knowing they taught them to do what was right and wrong. This is where Nature vs. Nurture come into play this is where we learn ones interest and abilities such as creativity, social skills, problem-solving ability, and so forth.
Parents are the keys to intellectual development for almost all children in the care and education…
determine which factors have the biggest influence on determining who we become. Two of the most debated factors have been Nature vs. Nurture. Were we born the way we are because of our genes, or did we become who we are because of our environment or social interactions? Nature and Nurture have both had influences on my adult physical, cognitive, and psychosocial development.
Nature can be defined as our genetic make-up. We inherit physical traits such as height, weight, hair color, eye color, skin…

Nature vs Nurture:
Do You Choose Your Sexuality, Or Is It Genetic?
The nature vs. nurture debate is one of the most enduring in the field of psychology because of the many different topics that can be attained in this single field. Psychologist have thought and asked questions of how far are human behaviors, ideas, and feeling, innate and how far are they all learned?

Nurture Vs. Nature
There has been a large controversy over whether parental teaching effect our way of thinking or if the environment influences and effects our way of thinking.

Homosexuality: Nature vs. Nurture
It is commonly known that a couple is made up of a man and a woman. It has always been this way since the beginning of man; even in the Bible, it is written that God created Adam, a male, and Eve, a female, declaring that man should not have to live without a female counterpart, and that they belong together. Man would simply not exist if it were not for this…
Nature vs. Nurture
The dubious history of the heredity environment controversy can be
easily traced as far back as the start of the present century with at least some
historical evidence placing the roots of this dispute in the time of John Locke.
This controversy has continued despite continual reiteration that the critical
question is not how much of a trait is due to heredity and how much is due to
environment, but rather how environment transact to influence development." (
Nature vs. Nurture
“we all born mad,some remain so”.(Samuel Beckett) want it or not,we come to this world with a pre-determined identety that we have no power over it.A set of parameters, like our parents, form the blueprint of what we are.from this point,we are somehow consciously aware of the influences we are exposed to.I am going to discuss the superiority of nurture over nature, in the process of what we become.The issues involved, are family,values of the society, and the…
The debate nature and nurture has been going on for years and is still unresolved due to no one quite knowing which one is true. Nature vs nurture is about what makes us, us. The genetic makeup (nature) and life experiences (nurture).
Many theorists think that it is nature, what we have inherited and our genes, makes us the way we are and how we develop. Where other theorists believe it is the way we are brought up and our experiences, that make us the way we are and how we develop.
A wide variety…

Researchers have been in dispute for many centuries about whether
nature or nurture has a stronger influence on early human development
Nature is inherent traits from birth and Nurture is one's environment
(physical, cultural, social, and familial) and how each plays in one's physical
and psychological identity (doc 1)
In my opinion, I believe that nurture is a
more powerful influence in the human experience.
