Nature vs. Nurture
There is no denying that both nature and nurture both play a part in a person’s true identity. When it comes to genes and environment, one of the two has a greater influence on a person. One’s nurture has the most influence on who a person is and will become. One’s nature only gives them an identification of what they look like by genetics. Both nature and nurture is a part of who we are, but genetics doesn’t show who we really are as a human being. The first reason environment has a greater influence is because education is a result to how someone thinks. The second reason environment has a greater influence on a person is because people around them reflect them as a person. The third reason why environment has a greater influence is because the location of someone affects their views. Secondly, nurture overrules nature because intelligence is learned. No one has a dumb brain, just like no one has a genius brain. All humans have the same functioning brain, however not all brains receive the same information. The education a person is given affects the way they think and the level of intelligence they possess. Someone who goes to a scholarly private school is going to have a higher intellect level than someone who goes to a less fortunate public school. A person’s education affects their intelligence, beliefs, behaviors, and how they carry themselves as a whole.
In conclusion, nurture is more important in establishing a person’s true identity. Nurture is the main reason why we function differently from others such as our behaviors, beliefs, and
thoughts. Our brain functions differently from everyone, but we function that way from our environment. We build habits and different levels of intelligence from our environment and the people we are around. Nature only identifies what a person looks like, but not who the person actually is.
