You must have heard "A man is known by the company he keeps". Its also a universal saying "As you sow, so shall you reap". Man is a social animal, which means that man learns from his environment. No doubt inbuilt ability comes from the biological components we have, but it is nurtured only when its gets the proper opportunity from its surroundings.
I once read a Psychologists discovery about a child girl "Anna" at the age of 7 or 11 (if I am not wrong), this child was not able to communicate despite having all the biological abilities to do so. Why was it so? Because she was not exposed to the proper environment for her nurture.
Therefore the company we belong to has often a lasting effect on our nurture and habits which take along the full route of our lives.
Some people also would say that it is upto you to adopt anything and reject other behaviors you see in people of your company, but in the realm of actual life, it is very difficult to shape our thinking and behavior contrary to what we observe today. Take an example of immoral activites or sins, the more sinful company of friends you adopt, the more likely you are to be a sinner yourself. Its only rare that you criticize them and MOULD THEIR BEHAVIOR.
One major reason to make a person walk on wrong and unethical path is bad company. The extent can be severe if it's not self controlled. That's the main reason parents, who seriously want their kids to be good and develop good habits, keep an eye on their children during their growing phase or during their sensitive age
bad company are friends who aren't real friends. They say "we are brothers" but the truth is they are jealous of you and wanted to put you into a bad shape.
Hence, it depends on one self to be strong, not get influence by bad company. You can have them as friends but don't involve in their bad activities

Do people inherit criminal tendencies, or are they taught those behaviors?Is the tendency toward violent crime an inherited trait, a learned trait, or something other than that? Is it nature, or nurture?
