The Nature verse nurture is one of the oldest debates in psychology. It questions whether our personal experiences or characteristics qualities play a bigger role in which we are about our behavioral and physical traits; the nature aspect of our genes, whereas nurture relates to the situations we have. Do we have free will, the power to make our choices, or is it determinism, which are actions and decisions are unavoidable?
A 2010 article I read about nature versus nurture, the debate was if aggressive driving was due to her family chain of aggressive driving. The woman in the article stated that since being in the car with her family members who were all aggressive drivers, she said that it was all she knew. She thought it was normal to make comments to other drivers while passing other vehicles. Her father and Uncle also have aggression when driving, making comment about the slow drivers in the surrounding areas. The women in the article, says her sister is the worst at driving, and will swerve around the car and nearly run him off the road; and she believes that the swearing, gestures, and the aggressive driving habits is due to nature.
My reaction to this article is that it could be nature because she made the point that aggressive driving was all she never knew, which would make sense for her to be an aggressive driver because she thought that was the way she was supposed to drive.
