Nature is the wiring of an individual from when they are born, a situation influenced by their inherited genetic makeup and biological factors.

These characteristics have led to a conclusion that genetics may influence other factors such as personality, smartness, sexual orientation and behavior.
Individuals that hold on to the genetic position believe that the character traits a human being expresses are due to the evolution of the individual genetic code influencing the differences.
