NATURE/NURTURE 2
Where do you stand on nature/nurture debate
Some things are shared genetically, while there are others we learn from the environment
around us. However, I believe that most of the behaviors are learned through observation and
imitation. Behavior is mostly learned from maybe the people we hang around with and the people
we grow up with. Nurture participate in individual personalities as compared to nature (Butler &
Gettinger, 2015). The social learning theory states that aggression is studied from imitation and
observation in the controlled experiment done by Bandura (1977) on Bobo Doll. In this
experiment, children were divided into three groups, the non-aggressive model, the aggressive
model, and the no model group, which was the control group (McLeod, 2014).
From the experiment, it is notable that boys imitated physical behavior as compared to
girls. Girls showed physical aggressiveness when the model was a male and showed more verbal
aggressiveness if the model was female (McLeod, 2014). When a child is growing up, they learn
from what they see or what they are taught. When a child grows in a family where everyone is
aggressive, they tend to be more aggressive. The study showed that children learn things through
observation as they watch another person carry it out themselves. Aggression can be a sign of
health development since most people are more aggressive at the age of 2-4years. (Butler &
Gettinger, 2015).

studied. The outcomes of the Bobo Doll experiment were visible and clear in all the groups, and
the experiment has been tried so many times with similar participants. The results have remained
