I took this class in order to gain knowledge of how to navigate a world with countless cultures. In the near future I will be studying abroad in Costa Rica and will apply these newly learned concepts to my travels. I also hope to travel throughout my life, so I am very much in need of tules to enter new cultures. I think the most important concept to base this class around is the platinum rule. With my personality, before taking this class, I would have assumed I should treat everyone the way I would want to be treated. In a new country I would great everyone with a smile, be outgoing and bubbly and just an overall kind person in order to connect with those around me. After taking this class I realized that that might not be the best way to approuch a new culture. It is important to remember the platinum rule: Treat everyone the way they want to be treated. Now that I know this rule, I will make sure that when I enter a new culture I will figure out before hand the “general” personality and traits of the culture I am going to. This leads me to another important concept, generalization. Before taking this class, hearing the word “generalization” I would assume someone was stereotyping and therefore disrespecting a person and their culture. After taking this class I realized that generalization and stereotyping are two very different concepts. There are so many cultures and they all have so many components to them, in order for us to prepare to go into a new culture, it

Completing the personal cultural survey I was able to identify the way I approach my life through my eyes. Since completing this survey I have seen my worldview through my lens and the way I approach people, and my way of life. Furthermore, I have identified that my numbers were very similar to one another, and that my average score was (4). Thinking upon this I was pondering why my average score was a (4) for everything. Maybe I grade myself too harshly or become too analytical with this test because I am a very detailed person.
Great post. Reading your post on the multiracial culture made me reflect on the multiracial individuals in family. It does appear that there is an increased acceptance of multiracial individuals. However, when it comes to adoptions of multiracial children or trans adoptions the issues I would imagine run a bit deeper and possibly more complex. The couple or individual adopting a multiracial child or transadoption is truly a beaufil spirted individual. Not only will they deal with the stares, questions, stigma and in some cases, being ostersied by the family, the child will most likely have questions and issues. There are a number of ways parents can help to culturally educated their bi-racial or transadopted child by introducing their culture
Cultural Comparison Culture, is known to define a group of people by their language, religion, and their lifestyles; yet, they are learned, shared and adaptive throughout the world (merriam-webster, 2018). For instance, there are many diverse cultures throughout the world, in the Ottoman, Chinese, and Ghana African civilizations there are many similarities and differences. In these early civilizations their cultures were driven by various factors that made up their overall civilization such as their social, cultural, political, economic, diplomatic, and military which all played a very important role in their civilization. Socially, the role of women in societies throughout history of these civilizations held women at a lower standard as
Every Culture has his own rules, characteristics, and has its different aspects. We have to learn how to adapt to those cultures every time we are facing them or we are in an environment that has a culture that is different from ours. We are living in a world where culture has become very important to know and try to adapt to. This paper will focus on analyzing the similarity and differences values, ethic and cultures of two different countries such as Burkina Faso and the US. As we all know, American cultures is an open minded, wide, and free country. Hofstede helps us have a better understanding of how multiples countries have a totally separate dimension. As for an example, Americans are known for their high individualism while Burkina Faso has a low individualism. As much as
The culture thinkers state ideas similar to each other with reasoning towards freedom, individuality, and women's rights. The enlightenment took place in the 17th and 18th centuries that was all about individualism. The culture thinkers main idea is to have freedom and make correct decisions in life. Mary Wollstonecraft, John Locke, Adam Smith, and Voltaire are similar to each other by having the opinion of people to have the rights of freedom of choice.
Diversity and multiculturalism have become an integration in today’s society. There has been constant change in the professional world from people of a diverse culture. “The changing demographics and economics of our growing multicultural world and the long-standing disparities in the health status of people from culturally diverse backgrounds have challenged health care providers and organizations to consider cultural diversity as a priority” (OJIN, 2003). In the field of public health and health education, it is imperative to understand cultural diversity and accept people for who they are. Sometimes we have to put our feelings and sensitivity aside and step outside of our boundaries to realize that change is constant. It’s also important
For my second culture immersion project I went to eat at a Mexican restaurant. I went with my group members Ryan, Brian and Brian's girlfriend. I went this pass Tuesday after we had our group meeting. I don’t recall the name of the restaurant but I know it was downtown Appleton near by the Walgreens. . This was good choice for the project because I never have eaten at an actually Mexican restaurant before.
Sociology is a new subject for me. It is not something that I was familiar with prior to the fall semester of 2017. I had never taken a class that studied human behaviors or societal structures. However now that I have some basic knowledge of sociology, I can see the different ways to study behavior. Many times throughout this semester, I have looked back on my life sociologically and started to dissect the different ways that my family, society and my own life choices have affected me as an individual.
In society, there are symbols and label established for men and women; these were developed early on when human life first existed. Today they are hold against male and female and still continue to involve in how an individual should appropriately display these views. Sociologist believe our actions are based off our place in society, this helped sociologist create three theoretical perspectives. With their theoretical perspectives intact, they could examine how labels and symbols influence an individual’s perception towards others. Based off my experiences with my best friend a symbolic interaction is applied. Deep inside my friend- whom I will refer to as Emma was not happy, she was not able to show her true colors. I knew Emma for as long as I can remember and I was presented with a side that she had not been able to express. I never suspected her holding such a private matter from someone who I assumed she trusted. As she speaks hesitating words, I am relieved she was able to confide and feel comfortable with me. The labeling theory emphases what method labels partake with gender roles in social and behavior norms created by society and the media.
The main concept of this Data Workshop was to literally “do” sociology, meaning being apart of the structure, functioning, and development of human society. Reading through the passage at first made myself realize that maybe doing nothing for ten minutes may be hard, since I tend to daydream and fidget around a lot. The experiment was intended to make the experimenter realize that identity is constructed through interaction and that one's interactions form their own sense of self. This experiment also proves that a way sociologist gain their information is standing, doing nothing, and closely observing people and their interactions. When thinking about completing the experiment, it made me think of this video of a guy sitting on a bench for an extended period of time and the background timelapsing by. So everything was moving around him while he stayed in one spot letting everything happen around him. Also, I had the expectation that people would stare me down and ask me if I was alright or what I was doing. Some People did exactly that and some people did the opposite.
In order to explain my understanding of cultural dynamics in society, I should acknowledge a previous experience with the American culture during my exchange year from 2014 to 2015. At the time, I thought I had a proper understanding of the cultural dynamics, after all, I had experienced an entire year immersed into the deepest American experience I could ever had, or that is what I thought. However, while taking the CCS100 class I discovered that my concept of culture was not wrong, but incomplete.
