Psychology: The Impact of Socialization on Behavior

Respond to the following post by incorporating material from the readings. This means that you utilize concepts, theories, and/or research findings from the weeks readings.  You can also include other resources if you they are helpful.  Be sure to include in-text citations and a reference list in APA style.  There is no set length because it really depends on how much time it takes you to establish your thesis and then offer clear support for it.  A few sentences will always be too short because a thoughtful idea can’t be developed that quickly.  Generally, you will probably need at least 275 words to establish your position. Read the following articles in Unit II (“The Person in Society”):  7, 8, 9, 11, 14, 15, 16.  Also read the introductions to each section.  Using what these readings teach you about socialization, communication, social perception, cognition, and impression management, analyze your own or someone else’s experiences in a particular social setting.  For instance, you can analyze your own process of being socialized at college, how that has changed how you perceive the world and yourself, and how you “present” yourself to others.  Or you can apply the same type of analysis to a character in a movie, or you can analyze someone you know at work.  You can use this set of concepts to analyze how anyone becomes a functioning member of groups and society. Be sure use at least one concept from this week’s readings (and earlier chapters, non-assigned chapters, and outside sources if useful), define and apply each concept you incorporate into your post, and include in-text citations with page numbers and a reference list (or bibliography) in APA style. Proofread and ensure theres clarity of thought in your response.

Use the concept of Socialization.
