Culture influences the whole person. There are many universals and many culture-specific aspects. This is true for mental processes, behaviors, emotions, language, communication, social relationships, ethics, and many other areas discussed in the textbook. Each person should assess their own lives. People from different cultures view the world differently. Embracing these realities helps people avoid ethnocentrism and even recognize the need and value of diversity. Diversity is not represented by what you see on the outside of a person but whats inside as well. Remember the profound impact culture has on the person you meet.
Assess the role of your culture in your life.
