Nature or nurture? We born or we become? We don’t know how much is determined by our DNA and how much by our life experience.
Personally I haven’t thought about it, until the moment that I read thearticle “nature vs. nurture” and I discovered that is a very interesting topic. And it is part a debate between two different theories that are based on the opinion of scientists.
It’s clear thatsome aspects of you are from your parents and can be physical or genetic, but not all of them, in some cases we have the same likes that our parents have or we just can be different.
Nature vs. nurtureit is one of the great mysteries of the mind and much research has focused on the role of genes and the environment.

The theory of human behavior is divide in two different ways “nature” and“nurture”.
Nature has been definite like the behavior people according to genetic predispositions or even “animal instincts”.
On the other hand nature is when people think and behave in certain ways becausethey are taught to do so.
These terms are use for the roles of hereditary and environment human development.
Anyway scientists still fighting over how much of who we are is shape by genes and howmuch by the environment. Although both are right.

As we know the color of your hair, your height, the color o your eyes or another physical aspects are determined by specific genes; at the same timethe nature theory says that traits such as intelligence, personality, aggression, and sexual orientation are encode in an individual DNA.

Some researches are identifying specific genes linked whitbehavior and diseases.
For example:
Some 80 percent of a persons risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease genetic. Others illnesses that can be inherit are cancer, diabetes, high blond pressure, etc.Sprinters are more likely than endurance runners to display a certing gene variant that is thought to cause the skeletal muscles to control more powerfully at high speeds.
