Psychology forces us to answer many of the questions we have about ourselves, other people and the nature of human life; why do we feel lonely ? Why do we forget ? How people learn ?

Heredity in psychology is a question that has plagued scientists for years and is still unresolved. That is, how much of our behavior is due to inherited factors and how much to environmental factors.
