  2. do agree that humans are both creators and creatures of their personal and social worlds. Humans are capable of changing and choosing what they pursue and how hard they attempt to pursue things. Humans can, to some degree, control what they pursue in life and the means by which they achieve goals; thus, humans create environments where they will be successful or be more likely to fail depending on their choices, changes, and control.

    Humans are creatures of the world as a result of biological factors that are encoded in one's genes and past experiences which shape one's mental and physical behaviors. Present external factors also influence one's life as we make judgment choices and changes to gain control in a way that promotes one's personal well-being.
