Are people naturally born with emotions of greed and desire?

Are people naturally born with emotions of greed and desire? Topic: Influences on learning essays
July 24, 2019 / By Johnie
Question: Well I have an English essay to write on this topic, but I want some outside opinions. Basically, do u believe people naturally inherit a desire for greater power or poessions than others, or do u think that gradually, over time, jealousy over the property or belongings of others causes individuals to aspire for more than the people around them. This sort of ties in with corruption and evil. Essentially, r people born evil, or are they corrupted by pride and outide influence. Hope that makes sense lol, thx for sharing. Yup, i agree with u peeps that feel evil is learned instead of a mere genetic or spiritual trait I completely disagree Gorgin. Sadly, we live in a world that is mainly dominated by good and evil, kindess and selfishness. Ur looking at the big picture, which is good, but u r neglecting the true and obvious details. And I am very naive btw, it's a human trait that every1 has, and u r not excluded. Although when it comes to Naiveté, u probably take the cake.

In my opinion, we are all born innocent. The greatest influences in our lives are the people who raise us. Whether those people are our biological parents or not. Our environment corrupts us, whether we get to chose where we are or not.

Gyles Originally Answered: How to grow taller naturally, or un naturally??
To reach your potential height you need adequate sleep (from 8-10 hours per night), adequate calories and a normal healthy diet. Plenty of protein from eggs, meat, poultry, sea food and dairy products helps as well as calcium from milk, cheese and other dairy products. You also need plenty of zinc from red meat, oysters, mussels, nuts and seeds and zinc fortified cereals such as Weetbix. Girls usually stop growing at 15 and in most cases any further height growth from 15-21 is insignificant. Guys usually stop growing at 18 and in most cases any further height growth from 18-25 is insignificant. Under eating and under sleeping can, to some extent, stunt your height growth. Exercise does not help your height growth and smoking can actually reduce your potential height by a whole inch. Too much junk sugar can reduce your HGH level as in item 40 in http://www.rheumatic.org/sugar.htm You can see further tips in a web search for "how to grow taller naturally".

I think that you are born with a little bit of greed and desire. The thing that really brings it out in you, is how you are raised and influenced. I watched a show once that took little kids and tested to see if they would lie to get something they wanted without being told to lie. 8 out of 10 lied. I do believe that you are born with a little evil in you, but I also believe that it can be made better or worse by your influences (mainly parents).

Does the animal kingdom show a parallel? Ever seen a greedy dog? If man is created in God's image and has been given the knowledge of right and wrong (hence the ability to act in an "evil" fashion), doesn't that also imply that the "beasts" that man was given mastery over, lack knowledge of right or wrong? Following this logic implies that dogs would be incapable of evil intent. Yet, I've seen plenty of mean, greedy dogs. As much as our moralistic culture likes to think of people as having "evil" motives, I link to think that they have pathetic motives. Things born of fear, poor parenting, lack of innate capability, or just poor breeding - I see that in dogs as well.

Yes. The human condition is naturally self centered. But at the same time, we can become socialized. Babies are very self centered and needy. So are toddlers. Thats when we learn our basic socialized morals. Share, care, patience, etc. Its along the lines of the Id, ego and superego. There are other great theories on learning too. As the person grows, how they turn out in life depends on many things. But I believe we are born with this. Any infant or young child will put themselves before they put others.

It is like a child who puts their fingers in their ears and yells "I can't hear you" when hearing something they want to deny. There are those who rely on World Net Daily instead of Discover Magazine, New Scientist, LiveScience, Scientific American, or WebMD just as there are those who only watch Fox News and get their "facts" from conservapedia instead of an Encyclopædia.
