Research indicates that the characteristics we are born with have much more influence on our
and development than any experiences we may have in our life.Which do you consider to be the major influence?
Many scientists believe that genetic characteristics have more influence on the human’s
ity than some experiences in life. Although
has some effect on our characters, I believe that the influence of life experience is more significant, and the following essay will discuss this in details.
On the one hand, it is true that everyone is unique, as they are born with different characteristics. While some people are born with an easy going character, others might be born with a melancholic one. People could not choose their genetic characters, and these characters will develop more as they get adults. Therefore many experts believe that genetic characters have a significant effect on a person’s identity.
On the other hand, other people believe that experiences in life have more influence in our life than genetic characters. Communities, family condition, education and work experiences have a deeper effect on a person’s character. For example, a person might be born as a sanguine person, but raise in a broken home family. As a consequence, he could become a pessimistic person when he grew up. Another example is that a man might be a
person, but as he spent so much time with
friends, he could become as just one them.
In conclusion, I agree that genetic characters have some influence on a person’s personality, but I think that life experiences are giving more significant influence to our personality. Therefore it is important for us to be selective in choosing the place to live, workplace and friends.
