Myths in Psychology and Education Regarding the Gene-Environment Debate


by Robert J. Sternberg & Elena L. Grigorenko 1999

This article describes seven myths regarding the gene-environment debate that permeate the thinking of many educators and psychologists. These myths can lead to serious mis-interpretations of the role of genes in behavior and to false conclusions regarding the modifiability of behavior. We examine each myth, dispel it, and state what we believe to be correct conclusions from different kinds of behavior-genetic and related data.
