The debate of whether genetic nature or the environmental aspects of nurturing pulls more weight in human development is a long-standing aspect of the arena of psychology. Which aspect carries more weight: genetics or upbringing?
Nature and Nurture intertwine and weave humanity.
Epigenetics is the best of both worlds
The ability for your environment to affect which traits you exhibit is a vote for both nature and nurture.
Genetics determine who you are long before your experiences.
The way we learn is innate
Noam Chomsky determined that linguistic ability is predetermined by the genetic "initial state" of the Language Acquisition Device.
Nurturing determines who you will become through experience.
Our traits are learned
Albert Bandura used Bobo dolls to prove that aggression is a learned action.
