are the basic physical and functional unit of heredity. Genes are made
up of DNA molecules. They play a huge role in what we get from our

and nurture kind of work together as a part of us, as humans need to
adapt to certain things. Heredity and environment are what has an effect
on who we are, and how we act. The traits
that are passed down to us from our parents are the building blocks of
our personality. Physical characteristics such as height, weight, color
of eye and skin, social and intellectual behavior are determined by
heredity (AdminEssays 2013). Environment can
mean several different things. Environment as inside the women’s womb
before birth, and social environment. Home atmosphere, parental love and
affection, association with sibling, neighbors, peers, and teachers
(AdminEssays 2013) can be examples of social
environment. These factors will have a great effect on the personality
the human forms and builds through childhood.
psychologists use natural selection to explain behavior tendencies by
relating Charles Darwin’s natural selection theory to the mental process
of human beings. I do agree with
this because I think that in order to reproduce, we have find a person
who best fits our wants and needs.
