In the movie that i had watch i found out that there are things that we encounter through our environment not all times is rigth. For example the guy in the movie he likes all the things arond him;he cant live with out nature. He always pretend himself through environment.The personality of the guy has been found from nature.In our environment we experience many things, there are right and there are wrong,but in the study of pshycology nature and nuture are always the same one of them is right and no one is wrong.


In the movie"homosexuality:Nature vs nuture"I found many things that was not capable as a guy and even in teenager.I dont like it because the attitude that we have found in nature was not always right,there are right and wrong so we must choose the right one.through the experience of the guy in the movie he consider the right of the nature so he encounter the bad experience and he always encounter the bad tragedy in his life.It was very big difference when comes in nature vs nuture.

Although "nurture" may have historically referred mainly to the care given to children by their parents, any environmental (not genetic) factor also would count as "nurture" in a contemporary nature versus nurture debate, including one's childhood friends, one's early experiences with television, and one's experience in the womb. Indeed, a substantial source of environmental input to human nature may arise from stochastic variations in prenatal development. Additionally, although childhood experience (especially early childhood experience) is often regarded as more influential in who one becomes than post-childhood experience, a liberal interpretation of "nurture" might count all life experience as "nurture".

Nature Vs. Nurture


There has been constant debate between scientists about the influence of the environment on children. The other philosophy is what of the influence of environment over nature. This debate has raged for decades. Current scientists are no closer to ending the debate.
Physical Appearance:
Physical appearance is determined by genetics. The chromosomes from our mother and father combine to create an individual with their own set of genes. These genes determine height, weight, skin color, and hair color and eye color. Genetics are also believed to contribute to intelligence as well as birth defects and possibly sexual orientation.
Environment plays an important part in physical development. Economics, culture, nutrition and medical intervention all add to the development of the child. If the parents or caregivers are not educated in the importance of health, and medical intervention, the child may become under nourished and lack proper protection from childhood diseases. Proper growth of bones and muscle and tissue is not present.


Heredity plays a strong part of an infant?s temperament. How the child reacts to certain experiences and how the child?s sensory feelings allow him to play out the situation.
The child learns social referencing from the caregivers/parents. The environment of the culture, economic standing and self.

Example of Nature vs Nurture:

For example, many twin studies have made use of identical twins (who have the same genetic makeup) who were raised in differing environments in order to control for genetic effects: that is, any variation between twins is clearly attributable to the environment, allowing the researcher to quantify the effects of the environment by measuring variance of a trait between twins. Identical twins raised separately may have experienced quite different environments; yet many studies have often been found that they live similar lives, have similar personalities and similar levels of intelligence. On the other hand, even identical twins who are raised together often differ in significant ways.Some have rightly pointed out that environmental inputs affect the expression of genes. This is one explanation of how environment can influence the extent to which a genetic disposition will actually manifest. Even using experiments like those described above, it can be very difficult to determine convincingly the relative contribution of genes and environment.Twin studies have highlighted another complication to the nature versus nurture debate. The effects of nurture can be further divided into shared and non-shared. Shared environmental factors are those experienced by siblings raised together. Non-shared environmental factors are not shared by siblings (i.e. unique experiences). In many cases non-shared environmental effects have been found to out-weigh shared environmental effects. That is, environmental effects that are typically thought to be life-shaping (such as family life) have less of an impact than non-shared effects, which are harder to identify. One possible source of non-shared effects is the environment of pre-natal development. Random variations in the genetic program of development may be a substantial source of non-shared environment.
