the science of psychology and sociology is....the question for decades remained basically unanswered....for every study claiming to show nature was the key component, another one showing nuture was the factor came in reply....
Most bigots love to claim nature dictates not only intelligence but overall human potential as well...and frankly anyone can fudge numbers to make ANYTHING seem to point in their direction....and idiot can find some so called pseudo science experiment pr test showing Blacks are less intelligent ....etc....those people really are not worth discussing the topic with imv.
The recent strides in the genetic sciences has re-opened this nature vs nurture question once again.
There is no question nature/genetics plays a great role in our makeup....i believe the answer of how much nurture can re-frame or even redirect us and to what degree in our human potential or makeup...is still unanswered.
I find most will side nature or nurture....to which one best suits their agenda....like stated...bigots love to claim nature almost completely defines who we are and will be.....thereby justifying their segregation and bigoted outlook on those who differ from them.
