Answer in 50 words 0 ma psychologympc-001 1 Answer Voted Oldest Recent admin Added an answer on August 20, 2020 at 5:20 pm The nature versus nurture debate involves the extent to which particular aspects of behavior are a product of either inherited (i.e., genetic) or acquired (i.e., learned) influences. Nature is what we think of as pre-wiring and is influenced by genetic inheritance and other biological factors. Nurture is generally taken as the influence of external factors after conception, e.g., the product of exposure, life experiences and learning on an individual. The nature-nurture debate is concerned with the relative contribution that both influences make to human behaviour, such as personality, cognitive traits, temperament and psychopathology. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
