Marry Beneche- Exam 31. Define primary versus secondary sources. Provide three examples of each type and explain how they contribute to identity development.How we understand the world, how we perceive others and, how we perceive ourselves are socialization forces of primary and secondary sources that we alter.Primary sources are unchangeable, intramural, or uncontrolled characteristics of life that are initiated at birth. Some instances incorporate family, race, disability and physical aspects. Even though the majority of these sources are completely unchangeable, others do carry into secondary sources as the person gets older.An example of a completely unchangeable primary force can be race. People does not choose the race that they want to be born in, however; it does affect daily experiences and they we self-identify. On a survey that was given to some white students, professor Kickasola mentioned how white students were limited to instantly identify their selves as white than other races. Your race can impact someone’s relationship and who they pick to engage with.Another example of an unchangeable primary forces is caused by genetics such as physical disabilities. Having some forms of physical disability can undeniably influence someone’s self-perception. For instance, someone who often utilize a wheelchair for movability will surely combine this idea into their self-identity. They might not recognize their selves as acting with a sports team in the very same process a healthy person would.Biological family is another form of primary source. Even though relationships familial do occur as a secondary force, we are genetically born into the family tree biologically. These
inherent relations last indefinite. Even if someone’s biological mother or father have no unique relationship with him/her, or grip no influence in that person’s life, they indeed live as facet of their biological identity.The careers that we determine to pursue, family and religion are socialization forces that are acquired or chosen by secondary sources.Family is both a primary and a secondary source. It can be biological or non-biological, and someone can select which familial relations to cleave or cultivate. The majority of people will establish their own lives and family, and all these relations will have an impact on how someone self-identify his/herself.A critical important secondary source in majority people’s lives is religion. Although some people are born into different religion, they eventually decide the spiritual influence in theirlives. These choices will impact how someone identify themselves, the dogmas and ideas introduced in every single religion may govern how someone see and behave themselves.Lastly, someone’s career and work choices will impact self-identity and how he/she decides to have an effect in the world. Selecting a work that fulfill the goal a person wants need self-evaluation, self-reflection and deliberation of how he/she wants to be recognized.
