Notes

The book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People says three social maps explain human nature. These three theories are widely accepted, independent or in combination, to explain the nature of man.

  1. Genetic determinism: it says that you're who you're because of your DNA.

  2. Psych determinism: it says that your parents did it to you. Your upbringing and childhood experience essentially laid out your tendencies and character structure.

  3. Environmental determinism: it says that your boss, spouse, economic or political situation, national policies are doing it to you. Someone or something in your environment is responsible for your situation.
