Here is the thing. All skill, ability, power, and control is in some sense of the word developed. Sasuke developed his control of the cursed seal power, and Naruto is in the process of developing his control of the kyuubi's power. the only difference is that Naruto does not have complete control yet. At some point, sasuke had little if no control and the cs would drain him of all strength and sanity. the same goes for the sharingan. now that sasuke has had time to develop his control over the cs, he is now able to fully use the ability as his own. give naruto some more time, and the 9 tails power will also be considered his own.
it does not matter if he was born with it, learned it, or simply developed the control. Once he does have control, it is HIS power. Not anyone elses
One thing I was thinking about that has to do with one's own power, and this is a real world topic of debate. When you have an athlete that develops his or her ability through hard work and natural talent only, vs. an athlete that takes perfomance enhancing drugs to push past barriers, the one taking drugs is considered cheating. What if both athletes take performance enhancing drugs? Is one cheating more than the other? Nope. They are both cheating the same. If athlete A is using steroids, and athlete B is using human growth hormones, they are still using perfomance enhancing drugs.
The same can be said of Naruto and Sasuke. Naruto is using the kyuubi, and sasuke is using the cursed seal. Sasuke is one up on Naruto because he also has the natural talent (uchiha blood). Either way you look at it, both are relying on an external energy source, that is no doubt. The only difference is that Sasuke was able to control his in a much shorter time (two years) compared to Naruto (his entire life).
im talking aobut when he first was given the cs, you know forest of death, chunnin exam. before he had control, similar to how naruto loses control. as for the sharingan, I meant to put some thing else in addition but did not complete the thought. sorry about that part.

really? you are saying that the cursed seal is a natural part of sasuke's body? I hope that is not what you are saying. I would quote it but i can save space by simply bringing it up. You said show you where sasuke has talked to the cursed seal. well, Juugo is the actual source of the cursed seal. Sasuke has spoken to him while recruiting him for Hebi, and while pursuing their goal. Also, the person that gave sasuke the cursed seal, orochimaru, has been seen speaking to sasuke on several occasions. I would say that Sasuke cheated way more than Naruto did in that he had help advancing his outside power source. No one is able to put naruto in a container an forcibly advance him to all 9 tails. Naruto has to develop that control on his own. sasuke had help, and the cs is from someone else.
now to summerize: Naruto was given kyuubi from kyuubi and the 4th, Sasuke was given cursed seal from Juugo and orochi. Naruto has had to learn on his own how to deal with and control the kyuubi, Sasuke was assisted in controling the cursed seal, and was taught by orochi on its use. Naruto is developing his own ability the hard way, while Sasuke (the natural genius) is being assisted and tutored on the use of his new power.
Everyone needs to stop giving Naruto such a hard time. He has to figure this stuff out on his own, and does not have any one to assisit him. Especially now that Jiraya is out of the picture.
And dont forget, Naruto does in fact have high chakra. It has been stated that this is how he is able to keep the kyuubi chakra in check. Also, Naruto is not using the kyuubi chakra anymore.
while learning the new rasengan, that was all Naruto. No kyuubi chakra there at all. He is willingly rejecting the kyuubi. when he does lose control, cpt. yamato is there to suppress the kyuubi. Naruto is trying to do this on his own.
right before sasuke entered naruto's subconsious, naruto told kyuubi not to come out anymore. he did not need his power anymore.

But the side effects are more sever than Tsunade's Jutsu. Like after Sasuke uses it he's not only is very low on Chakra but also gets intence pain to the point where sometimes he can't even move. And it erodes the body making it weaker and weaker the more you use the Curse Seal. When Tsukade uses her jutsu she just gets low on Chakra, but can still move around and she's not in any pain, and it does shorten her life to some extent.
Its never said that the Curse Seal works like opening the gates. If anything its more of a Chakra boost.
oh and also i thought the fact that jiraiya tried to unseal the elephant seal a little bit with the toad scroll was also a cheat for naruto to learn to control the kyuubi but i guess i'm wrong as well. with those two things said naruto has really just mastered the kyuubi so far only by himself without any kind of outside help or cheat. the only thing naruto needs to figure out on his own is creating the final rasengan that's all. oh yea i was pretty sure you can't teach people will power but i guess according to your account oro thought sasuke how to control the cursed seal which is basically will based.
