Nature vs. Nurture

The Nature vs. Nurture debate has been going on for some time now. My viewpoint on this debate is that children are nurtured into the way they act. Sure, your genes have impact in how you act, but it's the life experiences that you encounter and learn from that make you who you are. For example, my father is a hard working man that didn't go to college. Yet he worked hard throughout his life managing his family and job to provide the best life for us. I am the exact same way. I work hard in everything I do. I don't expect things to be handed to me. Nurture can also be affected by not just your family, but your friends and elders. Another example for me is my Physical Education teacher. He was the guy that instilled with me discipline that I will live with for the rest of my life. He made me determined and motivated to achieve greatness in everything I do. I do not believe I was born with these characteristics. They were taught to me by one of my elders proving that learning through my life experiences (nurture), made me what I am today. I would like to see studies performed that show that nature was the main factor in who someone is today. It would be interesting to find out how he or she differ from their parents and also how they are similar to one another. The subject intrigues me to find out how children are who they are today.
