Just by looking at someone people come up with their own opinion and believe that they have come to the conclusion of the type of person they are. Most of the time this proves itself to be wrong. As individuals, we need to work on doing this less often until stereotypes are almost non-existent. This is quite farfetched, however I believe that if we all set our mind to this we can escape the negative outlook that derives from stereotypes in our
I believe that if we were to not have specific identity groups the world would be much more open to change and immigration. Identities allow the people who identify with it to feel at home and welcomed but, when someone from another identity tries to live among them it creates conflict between the two groups. With the help of the novel, “Merchants in the City of Art” by Anne Schiller, we get a look into how identities do create bonds with the people you share it with, but they often create more conflict with different identity
What if this was a world where everyone could choose their own mask to hide behind? What if running away from some problems was this easy? Identity is truly about finding the truth about oneself and the conception of their selves but it is also about collective affiliations. With that in mind, sometimes identity can become confusing and a mask can as well represent a culture or help hide from it. Masks used all around the world have very different significance, but all are extremely meaningful to some cultures.
The way we present ourselves to our peers is often dependent on the company we are in. When around people we are familiar with our behavior will be more relaxed, showing that that is a comfortable environment for us. The actions of someone in a stressful situation are more forced, and usually, result in the person looking like they don 't know how to act. Though people have different layers of personality, their true colors will find a way to shine through the cracks in the mask they try to put on. We may try our hardest to conceal how we feel about the world around us, attempting to stay neutral, in an effort not to offend anyone around us.
However, people have control over what they choose to do with their life. External factors and past experiences may influence decisions as they may make an individual more likely to want to do something, however, people are capable of making that final decision on their own. Thus, supporting compatibilism. Erich Froman stated “All of us have the potential to control our lives, but many of us are too afraid to do so. As a result, we give up our freedom and allow our lives to be governed by circumstance, other people or irrational feelings.
Goffman believed that speakers maintain face through face-work, which is “actions taken by a person to make whatever he is doing consistent with face. Face-work serves to counteract incidents” (Goffman, 1967: 12). In other words, when an action threatens face, the speaker uses face saving practices to balance his embarrassment and hence the embarrassment that he and others might have over his embarrassment. These face saving practices often become habitual and standardized; each person, group, and society have their own repertoire of practices. Interactants make their selection of possible practices, but it does not mean that they are identical for every individual, group, or society.
In life we can't always control what happens to us. We will always make choices that are better then others, and there will also be consequences along with them. Some examples would be like befriending people. We've been taught that the people around us are the once that influences us. Sometimes we don't choose the right person to befriend.
I agree with what the man the video said about everyone in the world viewing the world differently with different cultural glasses. I think that by being born in raised in the United States my cultural glasses or lenses differ very much from someone from another part of the world. I would say that the way I view social interactions and the way I gauge peoples’ reactions would differ than from how others may react. For example, I think that if a person does not express some form of different expressions throughout a conversation that that person is not interested in the conversation. That might not be true though, the person might be keeping from making certain expressions because he or she is trying to concentrate on what is being said more than what I would be used to from another expressive fellow American and because I am not used to this this could be interpreted to me through my lenses as rude.
Most of the proponents of the Law of Attraction say that your world is a reflection of your consciousness and I happen to agree with that. Notice how where you live is a reflection of your inner world of thoughts and emotions or when you go to other people’s places, maybe visiting a friend or a relative. Their places are reflection of what goes inside their heads and that is why we are upset when somebody invades our place and rearranges stuff, that constitutes a change for us and we humans do not like to change.Suddenly we feel like it is not our place anymore and the same is true with business or anything we do. THE REASON WHY PEOPLE FAIL people fail in business and are broke is because of what goes on inside of them. If you want your results to change then you have to change what goes on in your inner world.
