27) Impression Management: Front Stage: Back Stage Impression management is defined in Wikipedia as “the process through which people try to control the impressions other people form of them.” In other words it is a form of the looking glass self. 28) Social Structure: Stratification Social structure is talked about in “Why are people unequal in society” found in Ten Questions as “a social pattern that involves unequal ranks; thus, wherever it develops, a permanent system of inequality is established, and individuals become ranked throughout society and throughout every social organization.” The system of inequality talked about is known as social stratification. Stratification is defined in Wikipedia as “the hierarchal arrangement of people in a society.” An example of this is the difference between the wealthy and the poor. Lesson 7 states that “Stratification is the relationship of power, privilege and resources.” We discussed in class how these are all socially constructed and are a part of our social structure. Wealthy individuals have more power, privilege and resources then the poor.
