Sir Fancis Galton

Sir Francis Galton's school of thought was inheritable traits. He wanted to study  how heredity influences people's abilities, character, and behavior. Galton lived during the time of 1822 to 1911. This was during the 19th century when he was a mathematician and scientist. Galton began his work before psychology became a huge deal.

This person was important to psychology because he influenced how we think about our heritable traits. Also because it helps us better understand why heritable traits are related to psychology. As we went forward in time we better understood traits as a whole. This influenced how we look at heritable traits to today and how they influence what we have become. Lastly, this influenced the groundbreaker because it gave evidence that he was right to relate all these things to inherited traits.
