Normative socio-cultural graded influences are events that affect almost all of the people born in a particular society and immersed in a particular culture. If a person is brought up with certain cultural values, it is expected that society and culture have an impact on the life of that individual.
Some examples of normative sociocultural graded influences:
- The events that occur in life due to society such as going to kindergarten, enrolling in school, graduating from university are examples of normative sociocultural graded influences.
- A person goes through various events such as celebrating birthdays, getting married, etc. because of cultural influences.
- A person’s race and ethnicity has an influence on the life of the person. The individual can face bias or prejudice due to his racial or ethnic background.
- A person’s social class is an example of sociocultural graded influence. The life of a middle class person will be very different from that of an extremely rich person.
