I want you to think about yourself in a sociological manner. This means trying to understand how social factors have influenced the person that you are. How have your agents of socialization influenced the person that you are? How have they helped to shape your values, attitudes, behaviors, and lifestyle?
Choose 3 things about yourself to write about (3 of your characteristics) and generally describe your socialization process. You might start off by answering the question: I am ___________? You might answer independent, or kind or trust or maybe sloppy, or aggressive, or selfish, it depends on you. Next, explain which agents influenced each characteristic and how that was. Some things you MAY consider to look at include:
For example, I might say that I was trusting and I could say that my geographic location contributed to me being a trusting person. I would explain how being raised where I was contributed to this characteristic by illustrating the process in an example.
