I chose this chapter because everyone of us are alike in some way, our society and culture are what set us apart from one another. Every invdividuals personalities are shaped and molded around culture. Most people accept social situations in which they find themselves in and little attempt to change it. Psychological problems are accepted among most members of society. It is a constant adjustment from the time we were born til we die.This chapter is full of cultures and societies of the past and present. The first thing that come to my mind today when I hear about society is how almost everyone is at war with their own body. Every of us has is different size and shape, but we should accept each other for who we are. We have no idea what is going on in a certain individuals head every day. Maybe they think their husband or wife doesn’t love them anymore because of the way they look, maybe they are starving themselves, a teenage girl wants to grow up to be come a model so she is anorexic now because of what she has seen on TV. Everyone is battling with todays culture and society more than ever, to be the best, when every person should know that they already the BEST!
Video clip: This ABC video clips tells about how women battle with weight. I like how we hardly ever hear about men battling their weight.
Internet Links: This first link gives a great overview of psychology of culture and it helped me understand this chapter a little bit more.
This next link has very good information all the way from the Early Western Individuality back in 1400 to when psychology was developed.
