who we are is a combination of our genetic blueprint (nature) and our environmental influences, particularly family (nurture). can you see the workings of nature and nurture in your own life? Do you look like/act like one of your biological parents? If you're adopted or have family members who were adopted, can you see the influence of both nature and nurture on personality? If you or your children had a parent who has been mostly absent from your/their lives, can you still see the genetic influence on behavior?
