I don't really think you can blame genetics or environment for behavior since
both combine to effect it so much that it is sometimes very hard to tell
which is responsible for behavior (good or bad). What if Einstien had never
been exposed to math or Mozart to music? Would they have discovered their
inborn talents anyway?
I think exposure is important because without it none of us would learn where
our true talents lie. Sometimes it is the smallest exposure that opens the
door for us and leads to the road of self-discovery but at other times, you
can be exposed to something insaturation and yet have it affect your psyche
nil. Maybe genetics help guide us and environment exposes us. A combination
of guidance and exposure helps talent emerge.
