Beatrice is the main character, in the book Insurgent Series by Veronica Roth, Beatrice was trying to figure out how she was going to confess what she has done. Beatrice is Divergent, she has different traits and emotions compared to other people in the society. She was in Candor, a courtroom where she can let her anger out and no one can judge her for what she has done, especially from the ones she loves. When the attention was pointed to her, she was scared to tell the full story about what was bothering her. Beatrice thought to herself, “Safe places, where confessing that I shot one of my best friends would be easy, where I would not be afraid of the way that Tobias will look at me when he finds out what I did.” This quote shows that people shouldn’t hold secrets in, but to let it out even how bad the secret is.
Tan’s mother then becomes unwilling to express her needs to the other since her broken English is always ignored. Yet what Tan expressed using perfect English is always be answered.

It has been theorized to be one of the major factors that influences the formation of an individual’s idea about themselves. In recent literature the term ‘Cultural Identity’ has been mentioned, which refers to the aspect of an individual’s definition of self that derives directly from his or her link with one of more cultural groups. Cultural Identity comprises of the “shared traits, values, norms, experiences and history that are associated with one’s group and are internalized by the individual to make up an essential component of his or her identity” (Ashmore, 2004 as cited in Usborne & Sablonniere,2014). The importance of cultural identity can be understood in terms of the fact that it is now seen as an essential part of the overall identity development of a person and has been shown to affect the levels of psychological well-being in
There are specific strategies that help overcome cross cultural communication barriers. A newspaper article by Thena Information Solutions Pvt. Ltd. (2010, June 8) discusses cross‐cultural communication as a process of becoming aware of another culture's habits, actions and reasons behind behaviours. In this article the author indicates that cross-cultural communication always demands clear understanding of each other's feelings, emotions and sentiments which might be deeply-rooted in their respective cultural norms and values. Kai (2005) focuses on sensitivity to cultural diversity, stereotyping and prejudice, general skills of good communication, andd specific skills to negotiate communication barriers.
The three perceptual distortions I will be touching upon are implicit personality theory, stereotyping and primacy and recency. (Solomon, Theiss 2012) “When you engage in interpersonal communication you become linked together. Interpersonal communication involves paying attention to the characteristics and circumstances that make the participants unique individuals.”(check if this is actual quote and do I put book here or before quote. Also should this be at start of intro) You and the people your communicating with are constantly changing which means we have to adapt to these changes to become better communicators. (de vito but kind made it up too) Through perception check and critical thinking etc.
A summary of what Self-esteem is would be as follows: how someone feels about themselves, how much they think their life is worth, how much respect someone has for themselves. There are many influences that determine our self-esteem level. Society, drug or alcohol influence, and relationships are three factors that often have an input on how we view ourselves as all three factors are constantly giving input on what we should and shouldn’t do and how we should conduct our lives. Society and the people around us have a big influence on how we feel about ourselves, or our self-esteem. Society often defines who we are as people and how we should act.
Maintaining a professional boundary in nursing can be difficult at times. With the use of social media one can easily cross the nurse-patient boundary. I’m sure the father was going through a very difficult time and was reaching out to someone he trusted. According the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (2014), “nurses can unintentionally blur the lines between their professional and personal lives” through social media (p.4). Principles for Social Networking and the Nurse: Guidance for the Registered Nurse, released in 2011 by the American Nurses Association (ANA), states that “nurses must observe ethically prescribed professional patient-nurse boundaries.” I agree with you, that your friend could have avoided the situation if
The themes are importance of memories in or lives, following the rules of a community blindly and without interpretting the rules, and finally how an idividual is important to our world. First of all, one of the most recognizable theme in the Giver is the importance of the memories. The whole community is isolated from the memories and thet don 't even know what memories mean. Lowry has inspired to use this idea when her father got a disease and had gaps between his hort term memory. When her father had this issue, she wanted to create a fictional world where no one had any memories.
Languages are complex because they are made up of many components. Some components include the culture, meaning, and interpretation. The way people understand language has to do mostly with their culture and their understanding of what is being said. Also, depending upon where someone is raised, the pronunciation of certain words can be different and therefore it influences the understanding. My goal in this paper is to demonstrate that language and culture are intertwined.
