Summarize how you think your environment works to influence your identity.

    Factors such as friends, family, and events shape your life.  Dramatic events sometimes ruin ones self image and make you change to fit society.

    The environment you live and thrive in influences many things in your lifestyle. The people you surround yourself with can either help or hurt your reputation. They will also influence your decisions, actions, and other life choices. Along with the people in your life, your overall environment also influences many life choices. For example, if a child is raised in a bad household with an angry, drug addicted family, they are more likely to grow up believing these actions are tolerable and okay with society. On the other hand, if a child is raised in a house with hardworking, and moralisitic parents, they are likely to be productive and succesful in the future.

    Celebrities and magazines make you want to look and act a certain way. Your friends and family influence how you live your life and the decisions you make. People worry about what people would think of them if they dress or act a certain why so they try to conform to the public's view of what they should do and who they should be, instead of just being themselves.

    I think the enviroment works to influence our identity because our enviroment influences our actions. Our actions determine our identity. For example, our friends sometimes influence our actions.

    I think your peers, family, and lifetyle affect your indentity.  Its is possible that people want to fit in so they will try to be like others to fit in.  The way your parents raise you can affect the person you become.

    The environment you live in effects your identity because it is how other people will see you. For example, if your family has a lot of money, people see you as rich and proper.

    Your environment influences your identity because you learn from those around you. Due to people you like or want to be like you change to suit how they act. Also, from a young age your brain develops to interact from social interactions and experiences around you.

    Since your enviroment are the things around you then it must help to how you act around people and interact with them. If you are surrounded by mean people who committed crimes and done horrible things in life then your more likely to be like them or be judged because of them but if your surrounded by nice people who were raised in church and have never done anything wrong in their life then your more likely to be like them or be expected to be like them.

    Your environment influences your identity at very early stages of your life. You learn from your parents how to behave and act a certain way. As you get older your influences change to be more based on your friends and peers.

    Because if you are raised in a loving, caring environment, you will take on the good morals that you learn from that environment. The same principal applies to a negative environment, only with negative morals.
