- Genetic and Environmental Influences on Intelligence
Like most aspects of human behavior and cognition, intelligence is a complex trait that is influenced by both genetic and environmental factors. Intelligence is challenging to study, in part because it can be defined and measured in different ways.

Today, researchers generally agree that heredity and environment have an interactive influence on intelligence. Many researchers believe that there is a reaction range to IQ, which refers to the limits placed on IQ by heredity. Heredity places an upper and lower limit on the IQ that can be attained by a given person. Despite the prevailing view that both heredity and environment influence intelligence, researchers still have different opinions about how much each contributes and how they interact. Family studies, twin studies, and adoption studies, however, are not without problems. See pages —38 for more information about the drawbacks of such studies.
Research on the heritability of IQ inquires into the proportion of variance in IQ that is attributable to genetic variation within a population. The heritability of IQ increases with age and reaches an asymptote at 18—20 years of age and continues at that level well into adulthood. However, poor prenatal environment, malnutrition and disease are known to have lifelong deleterious effects. Although IQ differences between individuals have been shown to have a large hereditary component, it does not follow that mean group-level disparities between-group differences in IQ have a genetic basis. The determination of many traits can be considered primarily genetic under similar environmental backgrounds. For example, a study found that adult height has a heritability estimated at 0.
Essential Psychology pp Cite as. The interaction of a biological structure with an environment in which to function is a necessary prerequisite for the production of behaviour. Without a biological structure no behaviour is possible; without an environment which provides the stimulation and the context, no response can be displayed. Each of us is a unique person, an amalgam of inherited genetic material and environmental influences. A basic theme and controversial issue throughout the history of psychology has been the debate and investigation of the relative roles of heredity and environment in the creation of individual differences. Despite beliefs that men ought to be born equal they are not.

The influence of both genetic and environmental contributions to intelligence has been widely investigated by different sociologists and psychologists. Their conclusions reveal that intelligence is the product of heredity and the environment Mangal, This is shown in various empirical investigations. This essay will therefore, discuss the research supporting the influence of both genetic and environmental contributions to intelligence. The educational implications from this discourse will also be discussed. Kundu and Tutoo state that intelligence is, "the capacity for solving practical problems of life, it is not just intellectual activities of perceiving, thinking, remembering and observing.
A child's intelligence quotient IQ is determined by both genetic and environmental factors that start from the prenatal period itself. There is a lack of data on the factors which influence IQ in Indian children; therefore, we conducted a multicenter questionnaire-based study to determine the environmental factors which influence IQ in Indian children. In this cross-sectional observational study, we recruited schoolchildren between the age of 12 and 16 years from 2 government and 13 private schools in 5 towns, 6 cities, and 2 villages across India. All the children were administered a questionnaire consisting of various environmental factors such as parents' education, occupation, income, and the physical activity of the students. An approximate IQ score was calculated using the score on the Ravens test.

Genetic and Environmental Influences on Intelligence
Every individual on this earth is different from the other. No one person is fully like other person. Every person differs from the other, either physically or psychologically. Even the twins are no exception to this.
