The Culture Bridge
The Content of Our Character
Internal Elements
Determined by birth.
When we think of culture, most people first think about race, religion, or nationality. The reality is that every individual is a complex combination of dozens of cultures working
together to form the content of their individual character. We are each the product of the cultures of our family, peers, role models, and influential public figures -- to name a few. Add
to this the experiences and events of our life, and you quickly understand how every person is different -- because no two of us have shared exactly the same influences. There are
three "bridges" each of us are crossing throughout our lives. Click on any element to learn more about it. (Elements in gray have new content)
