  • [Audio] Who in psychology has influenced your strong belief in nearly complete "nurture" explanation for peoples behaviour?



    No single person. I would say many different books presented little bits of what is essential. Knowing the difference is the major problem, knowing what to expect as making sense.

    They are asking about your concept of environment influencing behaviour. Did you get that from any particular person?

    No, I got that from experience with different people in different environments. I've travelled around quite a bit and found the influences of behaviour has been obvious from different environments. I would hear people speaking in a Southern accent, and I would know they came from an area in the South. In England there are people who can tell you exactly what district people came from by their regional dialect and their values.
