Genes or Environment?

Genetics or environmental influences? Which one is
more important factor in determining our behaviours?
Each individual is different from the other. We can see
much behavioural differences among siblings that were
raised by the same parents, lived in the same place and
had the same opportunities.
In response to those parents who are wondering about
their children's behaviours that is much different from
their expectations and their upbringing, scientists have
found that some genes can be traced back up to seven
generations in the family tree! So we can sometimes
observe a huge difference among the children in
one family.


  1. I believe that genetics is more important. Enviromental influences depends by genetics.

  2. The experts, say the environment, has more impact, although the genes have a huge say. I agree with this point of view. Kiss
