Human Behavior (People are able to change)

Understanding who you are by understanding how your brain grows and operates.

What do genes have to do with behavior? This is most misunderstood.

Genes have nothing to do with behavior. But the environment turns on genes (or the instructions). Environment’s meaning changes from small to big. This area of understanding and facts is well worth learning all you can.

There is no determinism from genes because of our diverse environments. Think about it. What does culture have to do with it?

Brains and genes and culture coevolve.

Individual selection? Kin selection? Reciprocal altruism? It is very complicated it understand.

Be damned sure you understand human behavior before you judge yourself or others.

Learn to be your best self!
