Our behavior can be influenced by nature or nurture but obviously one of them has to be a stronger influence. I believe most of our behavior is influenced by nurture. This is because the only behavior nature controls are our physical characteristics. For example, your eye color, the shape of your face, etc.

However, nurture controls us mentally (your mental ability), your taste, etc. For example, your mental ability will increase based on learning in the outside world. You could be gifted but that’s rare. You learn in school, through your mistakes, and more. Your taste can be controlled through our environment because, in my family, my parents don’t like almost every Japanese food. My siblings and I, on the other hand, we like almost all Japanese foods. This is because my parents have grown up in an entirely different environment. My sibling and I, however, we have grown up in Japan and grew up to liking Japanese foods.
