Ooo ~ Hmmm ...

I think culture influences identity . A lot of people sort of shape their profile with their culture .
Like , most Asian countries have words for older sister and brother and call their older siblings
by those words . Unlike some cultures where they just call their older siblings by their name .
So , in my opinion , Asians are more respectful from that point .
There are other examples I had but I lost my train of thought .

I think that as much culture does influence the way you live your life, it does not necessarily make you who you are as a person.

I agree with Snow-Chibi and not. Because I think that two would result in one and other either way. Plus I Brain Dead so I give you better answer later.

I think culture influences you if you grew up strongly embracing it. If you're mixed I find it's harder to identify with one or the other because you don't fully belong. I'm mix but I don't see myself as being one or the other..I'm just there. lol

This is just my opinion. Identitiy affects culture because sometimes an individual's actions affects their culture. Like if a person wanted to be a rich person and in his/her culture that isn't very common then, he/she affects his/her culture by acting on their interests/passions.
