Understanding The Importance of The Roles Played by Your Genetic Makeup and Environment
Suppose you wanted to be a social worker, would it be your genetic makeup or your environment that would help you to reach your goal? Most importantly, you would need a sufficiently high IQ to be able to study the necessary material and execute what you learned. Supposing that you have that, you still need for an institution to accept you; and you also need the required funds to cover all of the expenses you will incur if you are. Here the environment plays an important role. Having a family with monetary resources able and willing to help you to their best ability with tuition, books, bus fare, clothes, is a big factor in helping you to reach your goal. I have known students who managed to study and work hard, albeit at the expense of some much-needed sleep, and reach their goal. Their genetic makeup had the necessary components to do so; namely, adequate IQ and motivation as well as the physical and mental health to succeed.
