The long-fought debate of nature versus nurture has been around for more than two centuries and has fostered other political, social, and racial debates. It has all come down to nature versus nurture when we raise topics about human development. Human development may be seen in different perspectives such as a physical, social, and an emotional point-of-view. Although nature plays an extremely essential role in our development as human beings, nurture is the more dominant player in human growth. We are predisposed to many unfavourable things from birth which we have no choice of, but nurture is able overcome those predispositions, depending on how motivated we are. Nurture is what in uences our daily habits, personalities, and self-con dence. From the physical aspect of development, one would immediately assume that nature is the main force behind physical growth. Many of us are predisposed to diseases such as heart disease and cancer.
