They are so busy worrying about protecting themselves that they even forget about the others. People, especially in Maycomb County, avoid identifying themselves in the other person. However, they are willing to take part in a bigger group in order to not identify themselves within the other person not as an individual, but as a group. Every single person is able to make “moral choices.” Lastly, I conclude by saying that by choosing what seems to be the right choice, might be harder for the ones who lack empathy, but as Baron-Cohen says, “the choice still
Which is better: conforming or nonconforming? Many may say that conforming is better than nonconforming but it really doesn't matter, it is up to you who you want to be in life. Following people or wanting to be like who they are is settling with the opinions of others. Although some say conforming is the better option there are some people that believe otherwise. Likewise, conforming is better because you’ll have people look at you differently rather than someone that conforms, being different changes the world because everyone isn’t the same.
People want to avoid conflict by not speaking out against society and its members, but at the same time, they want to do whats right. Everyone has been in a situation similar to that in the past, where even for a moment you think that something is wrong that society thinks it’s okay. Now we dont always act on that thought, because if we did, it would create tension. But that thought is always there. Most people just shove that thought into the very back of their head and try to forget about it instead of trying to change what is wrong, to avoid conflict.
People are afraid to stray from what they have been conditioned to think by society. They believe that they aren’t doing anything wrong, because the patriarchy rewards them for acting a certain way. The problem is that just because something is the norm, doesn’t mean that it’s the only right answer or solution. This paper highlights that in specific ways. Humans feel the need to categorize everything, but gender isn’t something that is black and white.
Yet, if a person is familiar with people of a different race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation, they might be less demeaning or discriminatory towards them. The closeness to those of a different social identity will decrease the likelihood of prejudices clouding up a person’s views towards another. Some may argue that not everyone can be familiar with those of a different race or religion because of where they live. It is not a person’s choice to be born into a predominantly homogenous neighborhood, but this does invite more prejudices to come in. I would argue that a person can make an effort, even if they live in a sheltered community, to expand oneself and get to know those who have different backgrounds or lives than they do.
For e.g. shaking hands when you meet someone may be correct for one culture but will not be appropriate for another. Talking loudly and maintaining constant eye contact would be unsuitable for some people while in case of certain individuals not making any eye contact would be considered rude. Hence it is very important to make sure that we understand this diversity and communicate with them effectively. Different professional backgrounds also affect our relationships and the way we communicate.
I agree with this quote for a few reasons. To begin, the people in today’s society do not want to get out of their comfort zone in search of something greater. They can settle for anything that will keep them alive. This is not how these people should think. Everyone has at least one dream or goal in
It is important to us and some others what we choose. If we chose what everyone else chose there would be no excitement or individuality. Everyone is different and different is what makes the world unique. Everyone has different likes and dislikes. You can find people who tend to like the same types of things but not every single little detail of everything that one likes, the other would like too.
There's certain benefits to thinking this way though. It's very important to keep one's own happiness and well being at the forefront of their mind. People should not be expected to constantly cater to others. Selflessness is completely overrated. Equality is not wrong to want something for himself, especially after servicing others his whole life.
If you wants things to get done your people need to fear consequences if they do otherwise. If leadership is determined by how kind you are, anybody could be a leader. You need to set down demands so people don’t rebel against you or each other. Your people need to feel afraid to wrong you, otherwise whatever your leading will be corrupt. If you and a group of people are in a difficult situation you don’t want somebody who isn’t going to get things done, and make sure everybody has the same ideas.
People tend to group together; it brings a sense of belonging and acceptance. We tend to dislike being different than our surroundings, so some end up being socially influence. As mentioned before, people thrive on the sense of belonging. But what happens when something different or abnormal comes along? Numerous reactions are thrown around.
One of which is so no problems occurr in the program, because when someone is disrespectful they make others frustrated with them and arguments begin (which is never ever a good thing for a group program). Also, being disrespectful to a peer is downright degrading. You will make people feel bad about themselves, then in return the will give up. If everyone is just respectful to each other things will run more smoothly and the results will be much more positive. But besides from being dedicated and respectful, you also need to be really truly dedicated to what you are doing.
Everyone wants to feel accepted in society and have a sense of belonging. Humans feel like they have to prove themselves and sometimes be something they are not in order to be seen as “normal” in society. However, can anyone really explain what is normal in today’s society? So much as changed since Goffman’s book that it almost seems that normal is not so much something people strive for. Today people almost want to stand out and be abnormal.
One of the many problems in this world is that people are discriminated for their actions and differences, but we do not see what they have to offer. What we do not realize is how all of us are different in a way, and how we do not always have to have something in common. If we were in their shoes how would we feel? In a society, individuals must learn how to accept others and their differences in order to live in a happier community with fewer conflicts amongst one another. First of all, in order to make this a happier community to live in, our society first must stop judging others for being different than us because we have not been through what they have.
Diversity in Our Own lives Think about where you live. On your street are the people around you all similar, or are there some people who have different race, political views, gender, religious practices, education, and age? We tend to want to group ourselves with people like us. You might not even notice that you’re doing it either. Most of the time it just comes naturally.
