Writer's Block: Nature or nurture

Do you think your moods are controlled by your brain chemistry or that your brain chemistry dictates your moods? Do you believe people are born with particular emotional temperaments or that they are primarily shaped by environmental factors?


it works both ways

o.o we're doing a small paper on this in class right now and Im having a hell of a time coming up with a one-sided opinion.... I just cant do it, I cant press human behavior into JUST nature or JUST nurture. She's also brought out these gender issue things - they are all for nature though and at first I thought I'd just go Nature because we had more class material ... buuut as I was writing about "born a boy, raised a girl" I couldnt come up with a conclusion I was comfortable with.

I wish she'd let us write our opinion even if it wasnt one sided, and that we could use information outside class work... there's more going for nurture than just "if we dont have human caregivers than we develop weird temperaments"(feral children)

yeah, that sucks you can't write both sides, because it IS both sides. it is not one or the other. but if you think most people will be writing for nature, maybe you could at least try to write for nurture to bring more of a balance to what your teacher is reading. i dunno.
