One knows that we learn by what we see, by what we 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 they provide and arrange. Most studies have shown what a child has learn by age to that has set the foundation for the child for the rest of his/her life. As everyone knows children act out by what they see, if they see what we are doing even though it’s wrong and they do it how can we yell at them for it when we did it right in front of them. A child's intelligence is shaped and influenced by his cumulative experiences over time. Biology matters but so does experience. Your child's intelligence is being shaped, challenged, and expressed every day by experiences with people, objects, and events especially when they are given the chance first hand. These same ingredients nurture many different parts of a child’s brain such as intelligence, such as the creative, the musical, the interpersonal, and the logical. Genetically we get our hair color, eye color, blood type from our parents. Thinks such as personality, weight, height, we can alter depending on what we do. One example that I can use would be that my dad loved the Beach Boys so I get the fact that I love listening to them from him, or the fact that people say I smile like my Uncle so I must get that from him. The fact of the Nature vs. Nurture stuff is that no matter what each and every one we come in contact with has a way of changing us. It maybe something good or something bad but it may make us the way we are, or one can say the way…
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? These issues are at the center of the ongoing nature versus nurture controversy.
The French philosopher Rene…
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
One of the most enduring debates in the field of psychology is the controversial idea of nature vs. nurture. Throughout the endless history of the debate, no clear conclusion has been met, only hypotheses have been formed. At the center of the debate, human behaviors, ideas, and feelings are being determined, whether they are learned or inherited. Determining physical traits, such as eye color…
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. Some people believe that it is strictly parental teachings that effect our way of life, others believe that it is the environment that effects us, and some believe that both of these influence our behavior. Either way, people have been struggling for a long time deciding whether our personalities are nurture or nature…
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.
Nurture strongly influences early human development for many reasons.

Nature Vs Nurture
Your physical features can be identified as identical to that of your parents, like your eyes from your father, and the hair colour from your mother. However, your personality and talents may have come not from your father or mother. The environment where you grew up may have a lasting effect or influence on that way you talk, behave and respond to the things around you.
Nature asserts that development is dependent on biological programming or genetic make-up that an offspring…
Nature vs. Nurture in Frankenstein
In the novel "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelley, the relationship of external appearance and internal feelings are directly related. The creature is created and he is innocent, though he is severely deformed. His nature is to be good and kind, but society only views his external appearance which is deformed. Human nature is to judge by external appearance. He is automatically detested and labeled as a monster because of his external appearance. He finally…
Alcoholism and the Nature vs. Nurture Argument
Does the environment that one grows up in contribute to alcoholism or is alcoholism determined by genetics? It wasn’t until 1991 that alcoholism was considered both a medical and psychiatric disease by the American Medical Association. Alcoholism is defined in the dictionary as a chronic disorder characterized by dependence on alcohol, repeated excessive use of alcoholic beverages, the development of withdrawal symptoms on reducing…
