Nature vs. nurture is a debate, particularly in the behavioral science. Both are possible answers to the question how a person’s personality and character develop. The debate asks whether a person’s character is set from birth or if it is a product of environment, such as how they are raised and who they are influenced by. Nature is considered what you are born with or your heredity is how you act. Nurture is considered the environment that you live in influences an individual. Nurture is more important in developing a person because despite a person’s genetic coding, the parents and the adults that a child is subjected to will play a greater role in the child’s development. Nurture has the greater impact and influence over a person. Furthermore, nurture is more important in shaping a human being because there are multiple factors that can influence a person differently, even if they have the same genetic background. Each person comes from different backgrounds, religions, and environments, which are all external factors that play a large role in the development of an individual. Television and video games are just some of the more specific environmental factors that can affect a person. Clearly, there are many more aspects of the nurture debate that contribute to the argument that a person’s upbringing is what will influence their development. For example, little kids that watched cartoons that have bad words in it such as American Dad, Spongebob, and Family Guy will influenced by how they talk. Most children’s cartoons are bad influence because there is sex, violence, and etc.; all kids are going to imitate something, even in the real world, parents just needed to supervise their kids better. The parents should have also talked to the kids about the difference of cartoons and reality. Some of the video games are really violence but parent’s still buy it for their children. It’s really all about the environment surrounding them as a kid. Nurture strongly influences early human development because of their surrounding environment and how parents raised their children. In my experience, if my parents raised me I would be dumb and bad. I’m not saying that they are bad parents; I’m just saying my parents are too busy working hard for us. They didn’t have time to take care of me. So, my grandmother and my aunt did the job. They raised me
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.

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.

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…

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." (

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…
