sociology 32

Imagine you were trying to assess a person’s social class. Answer the following four questions:

 

  • Based solely on his or her appearance, what physical traits would you look for?
  • If you were only able to see the person and ask him or her just one question, what question would you ask?
  • Why would you ask that particular question?
  • Are there any other observations that you could make from an individual’s appearance that can provide you with evidence of an individual’s social class?
