Our development is influenced by many factors and issues such as our environment and experiences we go through. How does society influence our lifespan development? Society is defined as an extended social group having a distinctive cultural and economic organization.
We begin to define ourselves in the culture to which we are born in, our way of interacting in social relationships, our music, our language, and our morals. As we grow up, lifestyle becomes our personal choice of how we influence or discourage our behavior. I believe that when we are born, there is no choice to go against your parent’s morals if you want to be accepted into the environment you were born in. Finally, as people constantly have technology in their social interactions,
Acknowledging one's heritage is a prerequisite fund of knowledge that is needed in order to take actions to sustain our way of life. In order to preserve our heritage, it is our duty to educate others who do not know better and to remind ourselves of the sacrifices that have been made that developed our nation’s heritage into what it is today. The children that live in today’s world are bombarded by the information of our nation’s past, present, and future; they are in dire need to be enlightened
I intend to illustrate how these moral values, important to the survival of a society, are also a key to the success of a business enterprise. Specifically, I will illustrate how the themes of self-interest, beneficent tendency, and natural sympathy can be applied in the practice of Human Resource Management. Morals, behaviors that are correct or incorrect in a society, are taught and learned in early childhood. These morals are continually reinforced through interactions with our families, friends and individuals with whom we interact through in our daily lives. Since there are numerous cultures in today’s world, different societies may have variations of these basic moral themes.
People belong to informal and formal groups, and within and between these groups there are patterns of interactions. Culture Culture refers to the knowledge, ways of thinking, feeling and behaving that give each society its coherence and its distinctive way of life. Culture is demonstrated by the beliefs, customs, values, laws, arts, technology and artefacts people generate and use as they interpret meaning from their world and solve present and future problems. Environment Every society is located in a particular physical setting. The attitudes and values people have in regard to their environment greatly affect interactions between the person, society, culture, and environment.
The Now Soc/105 The Now Culture is something that individuals learn from birth, it affects the way people look at themselves, and their surroundings. Each individual’s culture influences their culture preference in food, clothing, hair styles, social skills, music, parenting ways, and the way the individual reacts to their environment. Popular culture is everywhere a person can look from television, radio, magazines, newspapers, family, friends, and in work settings all of these things can influences a person’s life in some way or another. It influences the way people behave in public and the way people take to the constant changing in their surroundings.

The significance of social identity has a lasting effect on an individual’s behavior throughout his or her life. What this means is that every choice an individual makes is directly connected to one’s social identity. This type of self-concept leads to social ranks such as White, Black, Asian, Indian, and so forth (Identities and inequalities 2007). Once these ranks are created, the behavior of a person takes its natural social course. Any choice one makes, any future opportunities, are predetermined by one’s social identity.

There are many more factors that include; your friendship group, schooling, occupation, income level, relationship status, religion beliefs, ethnics origins, what you’re exposed to in society, media, stress, life events, serious illness and other personal and socio cultural factors. These factors influence how we are shaped psychologically throughout our life. Both heredity and environmental factors influence how we develop psychologically.
Then there is the socialisation process. This is the process whereby individuals learn the norms and values of the groups they belong, so that they are ready for social interaction.
