Nature vs Nurture, which is strongest?
Nature: the personality and characteristics that are innate to who you are.
Nurture: the way that care givers interact with you both positive and negative.
When it comes to who a person becomes at any stage in life, which do you think plays a bigger role?
I think I'm quite different than I was nurtured to be, so I wonder if my nature wasn't the strongest force there. I need more time to think it out!
I have a hard time with this one. I feel like my nature is so ingrained that I would have been the person I am regardless of anything else. I just might have been more or less of it, if that makes sense. For example, being able to tell a good story and keep a good conversation going was a big thing in my family. Now, I'm naturally outgoing but because of the way I was raised I am very comfortable in conversations, I think. But had I been raised to be quieter and more reserved I don't think it would have changed "me".
