Nature Theory

By: Yesenia Huizar & Blanca Escalante


About

  • People behave according to genetic predispositions.

  • Inborn abilities and traits

  • Intelligence, personality, aggression, and sexual orientation are all in an individual’s DNA.

  • It’s all about heredity and genetics.


More About Nature

  • Genetics clearly controls many of the organism’s traits.

  • Heredity alone determines the type of person we become.

  • Genetics plays a role in determining personality and behavior.


Evidence

  • Iowa first adoption study

    • Adopted individuals born to incarcerated female offenders had a higher rate of criminal convictions as adults.

  • Sweden study

    • Adopted children with biological background for criminality showed increase rick of criminal behavior.


More Proof

  • Boston University study

    • Identical twins were more likely to follow the same patterns of divorce.

  • Twin study

    • If genetics didn’t play a part, twins raised together would be exactly the same.

    • Twins raised apart would be completely different.


Twins

  • Similarities in character but different environments.

  • Different inherited genes can explain behavior.

  • Not affected by the environment’s influences.


Story about Twins

  • Mo was sent to UK with father

  • Hassan stayed with mother in Somalia

  • Same interest in running and sports

Based on Nature

  • “Parenting is the number one influence on a child’s success or failure in life.”

    • Parenting is not the number one influence.

    • Based on the genetic make-up of every child.

    • Heredity determines physical traits and everything else.
