|When we were /a little/SMALL CHILDREN/, OUR parents(,) who
|are a WERE OUR teacherS(,) supportED us and taught us about how to live in a life, so OUR elementary characteristics cAme from OUR parents WHO brought us up. After we grow up, we /get/GAIN/ more experiences(,) and we realize that we have to adapt ourselves to live in the real circumstances. Therefore, our characteristics are gradually changing from the past.
The /surrounding persons/OTHER PEOPLE AROUND US ALSO// have an impact on our characteristics. Occasionally, we have to change our characteristics so as to socialize. Apparently, the teenagers gain
a numerous influenceS from their friends. They may change their original characteristics by following with them. For example, their friends are favoUr to use A PARTICULAR brand name WHEN PURCHASING appliances, including bagS, watchES and clothES.
In order that they would like to /join/BE PART OF/ /a group
so they have to change their characteristics by using THAT brand name OF appliance also. Furthermore, the woman who has a baby is another example. The ordinary TRAIT of A womAn’s characteristic is TO BE beauty-loving. She usually makes up HER FACE and wears a beautiful dress. After she has a baby, she ignores to look after herself(,) because she pays more attention her baby. She becomES AN outdated person.
failure experiencING OF FAILURE plays a significant role in characteristics. For instance, someone who is BORN INTO a wealthy family is not interested in his family‘s business(,) and spendS time to doing /nonsense/ SILLY THINGS. After his family is faced with a financial crisis, he turn out to be a strenuous worker. In addition, someone is an optimistic person, but he becomes a pessimistic person, because he encounters a failure. It is obvious that a past failure CAN BE A lesson IN changING A human’s characteristics.
Additionally, ACQUIRING broadER knowledge has an impact on characteristics also. The GREATER knowledge makes people adapt their characteristics. For example, children are ACCUSTOMED to eating fast food, BUT after they acquire knowledge about THE disadvantageS of fast food, they will vary their habitS.
I absolutely agree that experiences HAS more influence on our personality and development, than the characteristics WITH WHICH we WERE born. The more experience, the more things change.
Nice work Groffy, but I think you should take more time thinking and reviewing your finished work. You have a good vocabulary, and I'm sure you could both improve your text, and at the same time, eliminate needless errors.
Keep it simple ... Keep it interesting.

|Whether temperament which we are born with or experience various situations has an effect on our character or growing up arouse some controversy. From my point of view, both of them influence on our personality and development.
Firstly some psychologist like Cloninjer believe that people are born with four specific temperaments ( harm avoidance, novelty seeking, perseverance, reward dependence) which have a crucial role in forming the personality and how we get long with our family and other people. for instance one longitudinal research illustrated teenagers who have been more novelty seeker , they have had borderline personality, which is a personality disorder, when they have grown up. Which is why, it is really important to pay attention to the temperaments of children. Secondly people are inherited some traits which haven’t changed. However, they have experienced different situations and have acquired new things in their lives.
On the other hand, some theorists who are advocate of behavioral theories believe that the personality of individuals is made by encountering several conditions. For example Eskiner who is a famous behavioral psychologist said we have different characters because our parents provide specific situations for us; in the other words we are product of conditions which we have nurtured in. for instance parents who have gotten strict upbringing to their children, they might be have had sons or daughters with obsessive personality. therefore they don’t accept that traits which every person are born with determining personality or way of growing.
To sum up I think that nurture and nature, both of them, are the bases of the personality and development, we can not neglect each of them. In additions Parents should heed their children' s traits which are born with and provide best conditions for them.
