During the past two weeks of psychology I have learned about a number of very interesting concepts and theories that are applicable to everyday life. One subject that I found specifically interesting was the Nature vs. Nurture debate. The Nature vs. Nurture debate is a concept that focuses on whether a person's personality and psychological habits are based more off biological factors or environmental factors. Over the years enough data has been collected that proves neither nature nor nurture is completely responsible for a person's behavior. I believe that studying this field of research is very important because it will help in many areas of a child's development, such as how to raise a child, whether or not certain environmental factors could help or hurt a child's development and many other related matters. Something that I hope we will learn more about over the semester is brain plasticity and how our brain is able to change and to what extent.
