One of the most common responses to the question "Is Human Behavior Genetic Or Learned?" is "well, it's both" but that response is not based on any actual model of or information about how the two. The Distinction Between Innate and Acquired Characteristics First published Tue Aug 4, The idea that some characteristics of an organism are explained by the organism's intrinsic nature, whilst others reflect the influence of the environment is an ancient one.
