Considerations of Power
In the day to day life, we face situations which call us to make decisions. The decisions we make are influenced by several factors; the key factor is culture. Culture is a complex system of socially constructed behavior patterns and aspiration transmitted generationally. Therefore, culture shapes how we think, feel and how the inner life of an individual works. The reason for this is our connection to the past which has formed a strong thread up to the present identity of a society and every individual living in it, although there are changes which occur during transmission. The influence of culture is evident in the way we dress, music we listen to, vehicles we drive and, to some extent, careers we choose. Here, we exercise the power over how to live our lives and to whether or how to accept changes, as in the case with dress code, where fashion plays a key role (Truijillo, 2008).
