Beliefs refer to the ideas and convictions that people hold, including religious, political, and social beliefs. Values are the principles and standards that guide individuals' behavior and choices. All of these elements contribute to the formation and expression of a particular culture, shaping the way people think, behave, and interact within a society.

This concept highlights the influence of culture on shaping our thoughts, beliefs, and actions, and emphasizes the lasting impact of cultural socialization on individuals.

It involves believing that one's own cultural beliefs, values, and practices are superior or more correct than those of other cultures. This can lead to a biased and narrow-minded perspective, as it disregards the diversity and complexity of different cultures. Ethnocentrism often results in misunderstandings, stereotypes, and conflicts between different cultural groups.

Symbols are a fundamental component of nonmaterial culture as they represent shared meanings and ideas within a society. They can include gestures, words, signs, and objects that carry symbolic meaning. Symbols play a crucial role in communication and the transmission of cultural values and beliefs from one generation to another. Therefore, the correct answer is nonmaterial culture.

According to this theory, the language we use determines how we think about and perceive the world around us. It suggests that different languages have different structures and vocabularies, which in turn affect the way speakers of those languages think and perceive reality. This hypothesis emphasizes the power of language in shaping our cognitive processes and cultural perspectives.

    Correct Answer
    B. Folkways
    Explanation
    Folkways are norms that are not strictly enforced. They are informal rules and expectations that guide everyday behavior in a society. Unlike mores or taboos, which carry a stronger sense of moral judgment and are more strictly enforced, folkways are more lenient and often involve customary behaviors or social conventions that are considered acceptable but not necessarily essential. Values, on the other hand, refer to the broad principles or beliefs that guide a person's behavior and decision-making.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Mores: are essential to our core values and require conformity". Mores refer to the norms and customs that are considered vital to a society's core values and are strongly enforced. They are the moral standards that guide behavior and ensure social cohesion. Mores are different from folkways, which are norms that are not strictly enforced. This answer accurately describes the significance and enforcement of mores in a society.

A more refers to a strongly held norm that is considered essential to the functioning and well-being of a society. Killing another person is universally seen as a serious violation of the moral code and is punishable by law. It goes beyond a mere folkway, which are informal norms that govern everyday behavior but are not considered as morally significant as mores. Therefore, the correct answer is a more.

These taboos are deeply ingrained in a society's values and beliefs, and violating them can lead to severe social consequences. In this case, eating human flesh goes against the fundamental values and norms of American culture, making it a clear example of a taboo.

Therefore, it is true that no one can be entirely successful at practicing cultural relativism.

On the positive side, ethnocentrism can foster a sense of pride and unity within a group, promoting cultural preservation and identity. It can also lead to a stronger sense of community and cooperation among members. However, ethnocentrism can also result in prejudice, discrimination, and conflict with other groups. It can hinder intercultural understanding and cooperation, leading to social divisions and tensions. Therefore, it is accurate to say that ethnocentrism has both positive and negative consequences.

    • A.

      True

    Correct Answer
    A. True

    Cultural relativism is the belief that a culture should be understood and judged based on its own values, beliefs, and practices, rather than being compared to one's own culture. In other words, it emphasizes the importance of understanding and respecting cultural differences without imposing one's own cultural biases. Therefore, the statement "Trying to understand a culture on its own terms is cultural relativism" is true, as it accurately reflects the concept of cultural relativism.
