Review this quote from your text (p. 9) by John B. Watson, one of the early founders of the field
"Give me a dozen healthy infants, well-formed, and my own specified world to bring them up and I'll guarantee to take any one at random and train him to become any type of specialist I might select--doctor, lawyer, merchant-chief, and yes,
even beggarman and thief, regardless of his talents, penchants, tendencies, abilities, vocations, and race of his ancestors." (1930)
Think about his statement in light of our readings for this week. Do you agree with Watson's beliefs about the strength of the environment in shaping behavior? Why or why not?
