Transcript of Societal Influences on Thoughts/Behavior Assessment

Societal Influences on Thoughts andBehaviors
By: Trish, Jason, Kiersten, Sarah Nique
Process by which individuals acquire the knowledge, language, social skills, and value to conform to the norms and roles required for integration into a group or community. It is a combination of both self-imposed and externally-imposed rules, and the expectations of the others. In an organizational setting, socialization refers to the process through which a new employee 'learns the ropes,' by becoming sensitive to the formal and informal power structure and the explicit and implicit rules of behavior.

A first time single mother joins a single mothers group for the first time, she observes the group members putting on a dinner open to the public to raise money for the first time single mother to get a house of her own. This is an example of kindness and compassion in action. The first time single mother then realizes that the members of the group are there to help each other in their times of needs.
CULTURE and its influences on behaviors and thoughts
Culture guides and influences how a person evaluates what is acceptable and what is unacceptable. For instance, if the cultural norm permits or encourages certain beliefs and behaviors, these behaviors and beliefs become socially, professional, and ethically acceptable to a person of that particular culture.
is a learned and shared system of knowledge, beliefs, values, attitudes, and norms
For example: If Joe's culture is against fighting and Joe's encounters a problem he will be more susceptible to walk away and find an alternative way to solve the conflict.
Another Example: A lot of American cultures celebrate holidays such as Christmas or Easter. If ones culture does not teach about such holidays than those holidays are not celebrated because it is not part of that cultures beliefs or values, and it is out of their norms.

Media and its influences on behavior
Media influences thoughts and behaviors in many ways. The influence of media is growing stronger and stronger. Because of this, the competition among producers and advertisers gets tougher as they try to come up with new ways to catch people's attention through their newspapers, magazines, movies, shows, and commercials.

Someone set a Subway ticket booth on fire just like he seen in his favorite movie, Money Train.
My cousin thought he was Spider man and flew off the kitchen counter and shot his web at the ceiling and fell on the floor and broke his arm.
Gender Roles
Gender is a broad concept by which we divide the human population into two groups. Gender is the concept of maleness or femaleness, and is present in all social interactions.
It refers to physical characteristics, social behaviors, self-image, psychological tendencies, behavioral tendencies, and abilities that allow us to differentiate between men and women.

A good example of stereotyping gender roles is to think about how babies are color coded, girls in pink and boys in blue . The kinds of toys that little girls receive give messages about feminine traits such as; dolls, dress ups and fairies. The same kinds of toys that little boys receive also give messages about masculinity for example; cars, trucks and building blocks
Gender role stereotyping occurs when a person is expected to endorse a series of norms or behaviors based upon their sex. Certain types of behaviors are categorized as masculine or feminine.
However, gender only exists as a comparative quality. Thus gender role stereotyping occurs when individuals are expected to enact certain practices or behaviors because of their gender. Most of us grow up assuming that gender roles and stereotypes are natural ways of being or behaving, so we generally don’t question them. From the day we are born we receive messages about male and female gender roles
No one individual is the same. Some people have more social skills than others. It's important to recognize the importance of tolerance, of different cultures, and beliefs for a better and more productive work environment.

DO a workshop with the employees to help them understand tolerance of other cultures and beliefs. To help them understand that just because other people don't believe in the same things or think the same things you do doesn't make them any different then anybody else when it comes to the importance of making the company a better more productive, tolerant environment.
