Chapter 4 Socialization and Interaction Why do teenagers do dangerous things?  We are often peer pressured into doing things, but we don’t do it alone. This is a part of  the way we socialize. The Individual and the Self  Symbolic Interaction and Development of the Self o Humans and Nonhumans  Our ability to make symbolic speech distinguishes us from animals. We  are able to contemplate our existence – we are capable of thought. o Symbolic Interaction  Hand gestures, voice, tone, sarcasm o Mind and Self  The mind can be thought of as your thoughts. But more than that, it is the  ongoing conversation in your head when you talk to yourself.  To have self is to understand that there is a you that exists that others can  see. However, you aren’t born with self, it has to be developed.  Looking Glass Self – the self­image that reflects how others  respond to a person particularly as a child. o Think about mirror selfies – we are aware of how others  see us o The Generalized Other  The attitude of the entire group or community taken by individuals in the  process of developing their own behaviors and attitudes.  This is the “they” everyone always talks about. For example,  someone might say, “You can’t go out looking like that! What will they say?” o The I and Me The Individual as a Performer  Impression Management o People’s use of a variety of techniques to control the images of themselves that  they want to project during their social performances.  Think about a classroom setting. You may act engaged and attentive, but  you may really be on some social media.  Front and Back Stage o Front stage is the side of your personality you show to the public. o Back stage is your personality behind closed doors. Socialization  Childhood Socialization o Primary Socialization and the Family o Peers  When spending time with peers, you pick up vocabulary, musical tastes,  clothing, etc. o Gender o Mass Media and New Media o Consumer Culture  Adult Socialization o Workplaces  Socialized in how to behave in professional setting o Total Institutions o Other Aspect of Adult Socialization  Family – learn social expectations  School – socialized by teachers and classmates – probably the first time  you encounter different social structures Childhood 100 Years Ago  Until the early 1900s, children were expected to work, either in the fields, mines, or  factories. The U.S. didn’t abolish child labor until 1938, as a way to help adult  employment during the Great Depression. Interaction  Reciprocity and Exchange  “Doing” Interaction  Interaction Order  Status and Role o Status – Dimensions of social stratification that relates to the prestige attached to  people’s positions within society  Ascribed status – status you’re born with  Achieved status – things you achieve  Master status – status that dominates your life o Role – what is generally expected of a person who occupies a given status  Role conflict – playing several roles  Role overload – can’t manage roles  Role making – role you make for yourself Interpersonal Relationships  Types of Groups o Dyads – 2 members o Triads – 3 members  The more intense the ties, the weaker the attachments.  Intense, in this sense, relates to the numbers of members. So in other  words, the more people that are involved in a group, the weaker the  attachments between each individual. o Primary groups – groups that are small, are close­knit, and have fact­to­face  interaction  Usually relatively small o Reference groups – groups that people take into consideration in evaluating  themselves, provides standards for judging one’s attitudes or behaviors Conformity  ASH’S EXPERIMENT  This experiment shows that people will often give the wrong answer so they don’t  contradict the group. o Show just how strong social conformity is.
