Violence nature or nurture. Some studies show that people are genetically predisposed to have certain tendencies, while other studies show that the environment is the main thing behind behavior. I think science hasn’t shed enough light on the subject. Nature or nurture, including violence nature or nurture, is a dilemma we hear over and over everywhere we go. Using observation and logic and a basic analytical process, we can see that a person’s environment plays a huge role in who they become as a person. Some people think of “the environment” as just a place where people live or where they go to school. They give the siblings example and say something like “Look at Johnny and Bobby. They went to the same school, have the same parents, did everything together, etc., etc., and Bobby turned out good while Johnny turned out bad.” That’s a silly argument because we have not been there with either Johnny or Bobby every step of the way to know if their environment was “actually” the same. You can look at this from another point of view. For example, think of Bobby and Johnny as twins. Can you see where this is going? What if their mother, for whatever reason, treats them differently. That alone makes each of their environments vastly different. If genes are all that matters, you would think that Bobby and Johnny would be the same people no matter what happens. But the truth is not even close to that. To create a better world, we must create better conditions for everyone. Humanisation is the solution.
There has been a long-standing battle between personality vs identity, with many people believing that they basically mean the same thing. These two terms do not mean the same thing, but we need both of them in order to exist. Identity is a representation of who or what you are, which is normally evidenced by you being. It could also be evidenced by your name or your gender and represents your core attributes. Personality, on the other hand, is the sum of qualities, behaviours and reactions that a person develops over a period of years and sticks to them. Personality is a combination of things that go hand in hand with your identity. The relation between personality vs identity is simple; every identity has a personality. Your identity, most often than not, will not change because if your name is John, it will remain John and if your physiology is male it will rarely change, unless you identify otherwise. Changing personality is quite simple all you need to ask yourself is would you be happier with a different personality? Personality is very fluid and can change quite easily depending on your environment or age.
What is love according to science? To most of us, love is an abstract concept, full of good feelings and a sense of affection, protection, and attraction. But while all this is true, there are scientific explanations as to why we feel this way, to begin with. So What is the science behind love? There are different kinds of love, and one of the most basic is familial love, the love for children and family. This is based on a need for survival – maternal and paternal instincts are there to protect the offspring that is so dependent on them to live. The family, or child, becomes the most important part of the parent’s life, simply because they need to protect their genetic heritage. Romantic love has many of the same qualities but comes about through a mix of hormones like serotonin, oxytocin and adrenaline that combined causes an exotic cocktail that in turn causes attraction. This is to find a partner and by doing so, you guessed it, protecting and carrying on the genetic heritage. So, what is love according to science? It’s related to chemicals and hormones, and functions in nature and biology. But that doesn’t mean that the love a parent feels for their child, the love someone feels for their friend, spouse or family, is any less real and genuine.
