Watson'S Theory

Watson’S Theory / Теория Уотсона

Give me a dozen healthy infants, well-form, and my own special world to bring them up in and I’ll guarantee to take any one at random and train him to become any type of specialist I might select – doctor, lawyer, artist, merchant-chief, and yes, even beggar-man, and thief, regardless of his talents, penchants, tendencies, abilities, vocation, and race of his ancestors. I am going beyond my facts and I admit it, but so have advocates of the contrary and they have been doing it for many thousands of years.

Watson’s theory, in my opinion, is making assumptions and having overconfidence in a decision. His theory is consumed in the topic of nature vs. nurture. There’s a possibility that he could actually do what he said but the simple fact that it wasn’t proven or hasn’t been proved remains. I agree to his theory up to a certain aspect. I believe that a child does become what he/she is by the simple fact of how they are nurtured or brought up. However, that isn’t the only factor that comes into play. Watson states that no matter what his abilities, talent, etc. may be he can still be sure that they’ll end up the exact way/ professionally (career wise)/ what they do. The environment a child grows up in has a huge impact of him/her, so even stating that with 100 percent confidence is not only risky but untrue in reality.

Watson’s theory is definitely a highly intriguing one. But nonetheless his demands for it are out of line. I doubt that mothers would actually participate in giving up their babies to become a thief as a living. He also asks for his “own special world to bring them up in”. No one can offer him the “ingredients” that he asks for this theory to even take place in, it’s unrealistic. However, putting that aside I believe is someone was to come up with all of that to prove his theory wrong or right people might not agree to it. This theory taking action would definitely be a sight to see. How the kids grow up to be a doctor, lawyer, merchant, peasant, or thief. Being highly educated isn’t easy that any child can do it by the way they are nurtured. It takes much more than that and Watson isn’t putting the other factors into perspective. And that is where I think his theory would fail in the real world. Concluding, that Watson theory’s, in my analysis wouldn’t be proven, at least correct. Many things come into play in nurturing a child to what they can or do become, environmental being one of them. Ultimately it is the child who’s decision it is to end how they will and no one can change it.
