The theory behind emergenetics is that people are born with thinking and behavioral traits already in place. These traits and behaviors are then modified and altered by the environment and social surroundings. In essence, a person has genetic traits that are affected by the environment. For centuries, psychologists and philosophers were certain that behavior only existed as a result of the surrounding environment, but research studies began to indicate that a person’s behavior is a combination of both genetics and the environment. Today, most psychologists acknowledge that both genetics and environment, or nature and nurture, make up the behavioral and cognitive characteristics of each person.
The emergenetics test is a self-assement questionnaire that results in a picture of a person’s thinking and behavioral traits. This profile is broken down into seven emergenetics attributes: four thinking attributes and three behavioral attributes. Each attribute is given a color.
