It is said that man cannot change his nature as it is in the blood and one has to live with the same nature for life time. However, sometimes people feel that their friends and relatives are showing some changes in their nature. Even our friends and relatives do make comments like "you are not the same old friend". So do you think that you have changed your nature over last few years?

Hi Dear deserve 40! It is an interesting topic which you have posted, though it is four months old topic, since I have come across it just now I am taking this opportunity to express my views on it! Basically nature is one of the character or trait by a human being for that matter by any animal.This is basically governed by the type of genes that we have inherited from our parents. For example some people are short tempered and tend to get irritated easily on a small provocation, which they might have inherited from one of their parent. Some people are calm and soft spoken. Thus it is because of these genes we have these basic traits and nature is one such trait. Now the traits expressed by the genes remains more or less permanent in the body and this is called genetic influence. But the big thing which may influence the nature as a trait is environmental factor! If a person is brought up a congenial environment the nature can be improved a great deal. For example short tempered person gets an environment where he/she is getting irritated now and then, then the short temperateness can get enhanced and on the contrary if the same person gets a peaceful and soothing environment he may behave exactly in the reverse form. Thus it is because of the environmental influence we may change our nature and with the experience of the life we attain the maturity and understanding of the life and we tend to behave decently in become a civilized person of the society, which is very normal for any normal individual.Thus I call this as an environmental influence! But at the core of the heart we may remain same the way we were during our childhood but with the maturity and surroundings we have changed our selves for a betterment! What do you say? Thanks ! It was an interesting topic for me and I enjoyed participating in it!

First of all... thanks for the comment. I do agree with you that the environment may have lot of effect on the nature of the person and so we change for better if we have got better environment. Here I would like to add one thing which I had read somewhere and I have found it to be perfectly true...."Adversity intoroduces you to yourself". If you want to know what you are really, just check your behaviour and thinking when you are facing adverse conditions. Thanks again and hope to read your interesting comments in foture.

You are absolutely right dear deserve40! I fully agree with the statement that adversity introduces us to ourselves ! That is the reason why we always talk with ourselves when we are in crisis to have dialogue with our inner self! Thanks !

Yes i have also heard a thousands of time that nobody can change his nature and i also used to believe this. But in last few year i have changed my nature, not a lot but just a bit that everybody can see the change in me. Its really difficult to change your nature but its not impossible.

I have seen many people changing a lot. I feel that they change due to their circumstances. Many of these changes are temporary. However, it is not very uncommon to find that some changes in the people are almost permanent. They can come back to their old nature because they have been living with the changed nature for a very long time and they do feel much comfortable with that new nature.

Nature's always changing towards bad.Almost every family has a car,some have two,some have 5-6(movie stars etc) All this polutes the air and stuff,and the ozone will soon be destroyed,and nature will die,sad but true. I don't believe that there's global warming and such,but the gasoline really messes it up.

It seems that you are too much negative about the things around. Ofcourse, there are many problems around us but there are many better things and we should look at the positive side of everything. Just cheer up friend...! People are working to control global warning and we should try to contribute out best in their efforts. Happy mylotting....!
