Ascribed status is a social position you are born into or with (An example is being female. I have no control over it. I was born with it.) Achieved status is a social position you earn through your own merit, you earned if you worked for it (An example would be Collage Professor or Doctor- brownie points? ? - just seeing if you are reading this.) Master status is the one status that defines you. It is the role at the core of your social identity (a caregiver is an example of this. I am known to be the one to call if you need care). Role Conflict is the incompatibility of expectations from two different status one occupies at the same time (boss and mom, they can go together, but they are so hard to balance). Role strain the different roles from the single statues that one occupies at the same time (kid’s driver's ed at the same time as a personal doctor’s appointment.) Role exit is the leaving the role that one has occupied a long time (retirement- what a special time- I do not believe I will get away with eating bonbons and watching TV). Chapter 4.
