Steven Covey says that we are predominantly determined by our conditioning and our conditions. He says in our society, we have accepted 3 theories of deterministic explanations of the basic nature of man: genetic determinism (we are determined from our grandparents, we inherited it, we are Aboriginal and we got it from there), psychic determinism (parents did it to you, upbringing, childhood experience personal tendencies, character structure – emotional scripting, emotional punishment, rejection, comparisons) and environmental determinism (current situation, spouse, children, economy, national laws – someone or something in the environment).
Force field analysis, according to Steven Covey, states that in any current level of performance or being as a state of balance between the driving forces that encourage upward movement and the restraining forces that discourage it.
