  • Nurture is a far more powerful force than nature. You can have a brain of a serial killer and never kill anyone. You can have the brain of an alcoholic and never become an alcoholic. Are you more like to become something based on nature, sure. Are you forced to do something based on nature, no. You can always override it, but if you don't try to then you wont.

It's a mixture of both.

People are born with evolutionary and genetic tendencies for things like alcoholism or gambling addiction for example, but the way someone is nurtured can trigger these tendencies to show outwardly or to start dormant. Its a combination of the two really.
