Role of Nature and Nurture in Individual Behavioural Differences in Children: Literary Evidences from Ayurveda

Nisha Kumari Ojha, Abhimanyu Kumar.

developmental psychology have become increasingly interested in temperamental variations among children because the psychological traits that make up temperament are believed to form the cornerstone of adult personality. Each child is born with an individual temperament which represents differences in behavior. Since long there has been a debate regarding the relative influences of genetic and environmental factors on individual differences in behavior and still it is on. Furthermore, as these temperaments during infancy and childhood have impact over the future psychological outcome, study of various influences on temperament is quite essential. Human behavioral genetics seeks to identify and characterize both the genetic and the environmental sources of individual differences in human behavior. Ayurveda literature provides a detailed description regarding the human individual differences termed prakriti, its formation, determinants and influences. Researchers should look through the concepts of Ayurveda which may provide the answer to many unanswered questions regarding the individual differences.

Key words: Ayurveda, Prakriti, Temperament, Individual differences.
