Socialisation effects

By | September 2013
Page 1 of 1
The socialisation process really varies depending on which culture it comes from. For example, some cultures do not have the same social structures as others. In the UK, Irish travellers have been brought up with many social norms that people of other cultures may find completely bizarre, such as the largely stereotyping gender roles and materialistic nature. Whereas, in places like the Netherlands, the people are much more modern in their way of thinking. Gender roles are almost non-existent, and trans* or non-binary members of the public do not feel as if they must be something that they are not. However, when we compare this to people who have grown up with little to no socialisation (e.g. the Genie project) we can see that the human mind needs some form of stimulation to understand language, especially when put against cases of feral children (children ‘raised by animals’), who learn many key traits from the animals around them.
