Some hereditary factors that contribute to personality development do so as a result of interactions with the particular social environment in which people live Despite significant differences in the way children are raised all around the world, some similarities do exist
For example, boys and girls are socialized differently to some extent in all cultures
Boys receive different messages as to what is expected of them from their parents and vice-versa Boys are allowed more freedom to experiment and participate in physically risky activities
Girls on the other hand, are often steered to learn how to do more domestic tasks
Parents do not always follow these stereotypes with their sons and daughters
Different societies will raise different personalities
Girls who participate in physical activities are often called “tomboys” where boys who take up less masculine activities may be teased for doing something ‘girly’ Different societies will raise different personalities
