Human Behavior

November 12, 2014

With this we learn that genetics and your environment makes you who you are. This

comes from what they call nature vs. nurture. This is when we try and figure out if the behavior

comes from how you were raised or if it comes from the environment. There has always been a

question on which one has more influences in an individual. But we know that both genetics and

environment play an important role in a person development and they both are needed.

Psychology involved into science because psychology uses scientific methods in order to

conduct researches. Some examples of psychological perspective that explain human behavior,

an approach is a perspective that involves certain assumptions about human behavior

“Humanism” being one of the perspectives and this is a psychological perspective that

emphasizes on the study of the whole person also known as (Holism). Humanistic psychologist

look at the human behavior not only through the eyes of the person doing the behaving

(Psychology Perspectives by: Saul McLeod, published 2007).

Cognitive psychology revolves round the notion that if we want to know what makes

people tick then the way to do it is to figure out what processes are actually going on in the

minds. In (1859) Charles Darwin demonstrated in the idea that genetics and evolution play a role

influencing human behavior through natural selection. Theorists in the biological perspective

who study behavioral genomics consider how genes affect behavior. It has been said that there

are a lot of different types of perspectives and by the research I have read over a number of them.

But out of all of the perspectives none of them has explanatory powers over the next. They all

mean something extremely important in the knowledge of how the human behavior works (UOP
