Nature versus Nurture

What makes you you? The debate of Nature versus Nurture

The debate has long been held about where we get our characteristics. Are they learned or are they pre-programmed? There are many different fields of study that that try to answer the question, from biology, phsychology, sociology, to education, and yet no one seems to have been able to find consensus in all this time. With that, the Six Pack team spends this episode discussing the different positions held on the topic and the questions that arise from those positions. Let us know what you think. Nature, nurture, or something in between?
