Claire Tu Sociology 1 Section 102222 Chapter Discussion Questions #3 - Chapters 4 & 5 (30 pts) due Sunday, July 15, by 11PM: 1. (Ch4) Compare and contrast role conflict and role strain. How are they linked to status? 5pts Role conflicts arise when incompatible situations develop because of people’s contrasting social positions. When attempting to fulfill a role, the status of another role can be affected. An example would be if a staff member of a company is promoted to manager, he or she would have different relationships with his or her former co-workers. The staff member would now be a manager to his prior co-workers. When people have diverse social positions it can be difficult if the positions require people to act differently. In contrast, role strain is the difficulty that arise when people’s social position require conflicting expectations. An example would be if parents may need to punish their child for unacceptable behavior, but at the same time do not want to hurt the child’s mental state and emotions. Often times, one social position can present challenging situations similar to the problems from role conflict. Role conflict and role strain are connected to status because they both are affected by status, or social position.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
