1. What makes “Me” the person you are? From the video, what 2 aspects of “me” are linked to my genes (give examples) and what 2 are likely shaped by my social environment (give examples), can you see any epigenetic influences (give an example)?
Use examples from your own life or from something you have read to provide evidence of how this nature/nurture relationship works. (Please identify any additional sources you used to help you respond to this question).
2. From the article: What is your understanding or the implications of this article?
What if our behaviors are linked to epigenetic factors or even to genes associated to our parents/grandparents, how much responsibility should we take for our behaviors, especially when those behaviors impact other people? (e.g. if a parent or even grandparent was a criminal, how much of this will likely be a part of who we are?)
