The Final Assignment:
The role of genetics and environment in determining intelligence.
Is intelligence determined by genetics or an individual’s environment?
Like most aspects of human behavior and cognition, intelligence complex trait that is influenced by both genetic and environmental factors (Genetics Home Reference, 2016). As such, it would be wrong to consider only one factor and do away with the other. The Behavior- Genetic and Socialization theories of intelligence illustrate this phenomenon comprehensively. Socialization appeals primarily to environmental differences between families, that is differences in the environments parents provide, including the parents themselves. The Behavior- Genetic theory, on the other hand, is focused on causes of individual variation in intelligence and other characteristics in populations (Sternberg & Grigorenko, 1997). According to (Scarr & McCartney, 1983), the genotype plays a role in determining not only which environments are experienced by individuals but also which environments individuals seek for themselves.
“I would encourage you to make your arguments and consider counterarguments. For example, look for research highlighting times when students overcome either genetic predispositions or environmental limitations. This will make for a rich paper.”
