Biological Determinism

Biological determinism, also termed as biodeterminism or biologism, is a concept which asserts that human behavior is innate. This theory places less emphasis on the importance of environmental factors and free will while individuality is seen as highly dependent on genetics and other physiological factors.

For instance, your race, gender, diseases, and talents are due to your DNA. Moreover, your temperament and IQ are viewed as largely attributed to heredity.
