What do you think influences our behavior more: nature, nurture, or a combination of both? How has technology affected the way we nurture our family and friends? Explain your answer.
Weegy: Answer: All aspects of human behavior are affected by both nature and nurture, operating together (N&N). Nature refers to all the evolutionary factors that have shaped the genetics that we have inherited from our parents and ancestors. [ Nurture refers to all the things that have influenced us since we began to develop (from the moment we were conceived). Nature determines the range of our human potential. Nurture affects the ways that our human potential is actualized, being helped or hindered by good or bad environmental inputs. Many people like to get into simplistic arguments about "Nature versus Nurture," trying to trace various behaviors back to either nature or nurture. This creates a very simplistic "either-or" logic that usually fails to grasp the rich complexities of human behavior. John advocates your studying all behavior in terms of both nature and nurture - as they interact and work together. He likes "bio-social" theories of behavior that are built on the view that nature and nurture are always intertwined. We are biological organisms and our genes are always decoding information for the new chemicals that constitute our body (and brain). But we are also affected by many of the environmental inputs that constitute "nurture," in the sense that they help or hurt us in ways that the genes cannot predict or control. An Example Consider intelligence. Part of our intelligence and brain-function is determined by our genetics; and that is the nature part of the N&N equation. But it takes nurture for the genetic information about brain structure to be developed into the actual brains and intelligence that we have at age 5 or 10 or 20. Let us consider both nature and nurture in the following paragraphs Nature: Some people have family genetics that gives them a great advantage in developing their musical intelligence or mathematical intelligence or verbal intelligence. You may have a complex mix of all sorts of genetic ... (More)
