Nature Vs. Nurture


Nature side
Nature Side

  • Your personality is based on your genes.

  • The personality traits you are born with stay the same regardless of the environment you grow up in.

  • This refers to the individuals innate qualities.

  • Personality begins to develop during the “critical period.”


Nature nurture
Nature > Nurture

  • Nature has more effect on someone’s personality than nurture does.

  • DNA is a crucial determinant of personality.

  • Genes are the basic units that pass on personality from one generation to the next.

  • It is not determined by one gene.

    - Many genes work together to determine it.


Twin study
Twin Study

  • Scientists have conducted studies on twins who were separated at birth.

    - Twins who met when they were adults had many personality traits in common.

    - When separately interviewed, the twins’ answers were nearly identical.

    - This is a result of their identical DNA.

  • Separated identical twins share mannerisms.

    - Posture


Dna study
DNA Study

  • Psychological/personality traits are influenced by heredity.

    - Intelligence, traditionalism, risk avoidance, aggression, and leadership

  • Identical twins’ DNA allow their personalities to be more similar than fraternal twins’.

  • Scientists have a theory that intelligence is inherited.


Intelligence study
Intelligence Study

  • Cognitive abilityis said to be inherited

  • Example:

    A child with intelligent parents, but raised in a less intellectual environment would do poorly in their early ages, but their IQ would spike at an older age.


Disproving nurture
Disproving Nurture

  • During twin studies, nature/nurture was tested.

    - Identical twins who had grown up in two different households had identical personalities.

  • Someone’s genes gives them a personality, it’s what they are born with.

    - Everyone should be nurtured, but it doesn’t create a personality.


Traits determined by heredity
Traits determined by heredity…

  • Eye / hair color

Conclusion
Conclusion

  • Personality traits are inherited.

  • Your genes have more effect on your personality than your environment does.
