The Nature versus Nurture Debate - Is Our Behavior Genetically Inherited or Learned Through Experience?

This article is about the nature versus nurture debate, or whether our behavior and individual personalities are genetically inherited or learned through experience and environmental influences. The article discusses how, although some physical characteristics are known to be genetically inherited, experts aren't sure how much of our personality and behavior is predetermined by our genes, or innate (inborn). Examples are included, such as how twins can grow up to be similar, despite having being raised apart. However, the article points out that they can turn out to be different, even when brought up in the same environment. The article concludes that the nature versus nurture debate is not yet decided, and that it is unlikely ever to be, definitively.
