thean IELTS writing topic: Opinions are divided concerning what plays a more important role in people's personality development - nature or nurture. What is your opinion?
The following is my article:
Nature and nurture both influence the development of people’s characters. The debate on which plays a greater role has been going on for a long time without a definite consensus.
It is common sense that the genes directly influence a person’s behaviour. Genes are innate and unchangeable. It is impossible to find two people with the same genes. Thus, it is not feasible to do tests and measurements to study the effect of genes on people’s characters. Twins have the most similar genes and research have revealed that even twins brought up by different families bear resemblance of character and temperament. As such, nature has a lifelong effect on the development of the personality.
It does not mean personalities are set after birth. Education, exposure, experience and the environment in general have a great influence on people and help mould their personalities. We all know that events that happened can have profound effect on people’s mindset and character. For example, after serving in the forces, people are likely to be more disciplined and resolute. In the same way, different conditions of nurture would bring about different changes in peoples' personalities.
Between the two factors of nature versus nurture, people today still wonder which plays a greater role in people’s lives. It is hard to give a definite verdict now but I believe good nurture and upbringing do contribute positively to moulding a child’s character.
