Nature and Nurture: contribution to personality development – it is a shared aspect really. If only Nature, how do we explain identical twins who develop very different personalities but raised in same environment? The same can be argued vice versa.
Our genetics and environment – both play critical part in shaping the patterns of our thoughts, emotions and behaviour.
Eric Erickson personality development theory states that “personality develops through a series of stages and that emphasized that the ego makes positive contributions to development by mastering attitudes, ideas, and skills at each stage of development” and i very much agree with him. One can largely control what they want to be known to be.
My take. The therapist in me – Facilitating Emotional Wellness.
