Has your family experienced significant upward or downward mobility over the past three or four generations? How do you think your values and behavior might differ had you experienced the opposite pattern of mobility?
Social mobility refers to the ability to change positions within as stratified social system. When individuals improve or diminish their economic status it affects their social class. This is called social mobility. My family like any other has experience a downward mobility. By this I mean our social class reduced especially during the separation process of our parents. This impacted on in a way that the lifestyle we lived was different from the one we had before. The basic necessities were not readily and easily available except through struggle here and there and such we mastered the art of economizing on the very little we had.
