i tend to keep socializing to a minimum. but I'm not some sort of loner. I do visit friends and chat with them. I just prefer solitude.

Socializing permits an exchange of ideas or input. Thus, it would help you gain knowledge for which you can either choose to apply them in real life or that you'd remain to be agnostic to the opinions of others.

Is this a thread that goes parallel with the idea of Nature vs. nurture theory that is used in psychological circles? Personally I agree that socialization affects our personality as different stimuli make us respond in certain ways. Church for example would be considered a stimuli though if its is good or not depends on what the subject experiences, the same with any of the other five categories. A person with a negative personality probably had some terrible experiences in their lives that cause them to be so antagonistic towards others. Positive experiences with other people in specific places all have a role in determining our personality, as the general personality of a person is the cumulative experience of events from various possibilities. One person may have nothing but good experiences but suffer with a mean personality because they have fooled themselves into believing that they are above all the rest. Of course, there is also the possibility of innate paranoia or previous experience which could lead to such a personality despite their current circumstance.

its in your genes, then as your developing its between the interaction of your parents, who in turn go through those same and other social things, during which what you hear experience and are nurtured during development are first hand and second hand and third hand, caus your experience is not just yours but your mothers, and hers interaction with others and your father, in a way perhaps similar to the holy trinity in experience wise because you get information feelings and nurturing in ways not just your own but your parents how they interact and what occurs during their days, more so this is why a healthy household and family relations of passion and care are a need most definete during pregnancy, one most important rule is the way you treat others and how they treat you and in turn the responses given to this, and this is just during pregnancy not even going into birth and babtism, or perhaps even the effects of mass on children and even how the envireonment plays a role on everything in their health and personality, even if the kid gets any surgerys or witnesses things, and during thier first years how thier treated and raised is a huge factor and how they see people live and interact and how arethey treated, this is why rascism can be so evil, because it can be part of a long series of convoluting acts of hatred ruining the childs innocence and development of potential kindness and loving attitude one must treat everyone caringly and unjudgementally even going so far as to give charity for the sake of charity, it can be a hard thing to learn without example and even harder to appreciate if they are neglected or see others neglected

Since obviously trying to put effort into a good discussion, I'll try to add my own experiences and write something worth reading.

Family
Immediate influences from family is one of those first and foremost underlying factors that shape an individual into who they are today. The culture rooted within familial everyday life dictate how people perceive situations and how they handle them.. there's just how it is.

For instance, I come from an Asian background -- a background in which high achievement is expected while being subservient, bookish, and quiet. Generalizations, yes, but I'm not going to lie about the fact that I fall within those stereotypes despite the image I put forth elsewhere. It's a part of being the 'model minority' -- ethnic minorities measured by their success and accolades -- that seems to be in the mindset of most Asian Americans and those who have immigrated to this country. A big source of this way of thinking emanates from families' who come from countries in which education is cherished due to substantial poverty. Whether someone didn't have the chance to have an education in their homeland, or they were overachievers at the top of their class because they valued the opportunity of being schooled in a proper institution, the expectation to excel always carries over to their offspring.

Peer Groups
My own personal growth with peer groups can be compared to anyone else. My group of friends have been, for the most part, Asians. Easy to identify with, easy to understand -- it's so much more uncomplicated in trying to have conversations.

But with this being said, there's always that group mentality that everyone should be cautious of.

Having been around Asians, predominately Filipinos, for a big chunk of my life, it's amazingly easy forget how to include others who aren't familiar with your culture. It's even moreso easy to dismiss opinions of those outsiders because they don't think the same way. I had an difficult time coming to terms that hanging out in droves of East Asian/Pacific Islanders doesn't exactly make you worldly or open to other walks of life, and have been trying to change that particular mindset for awhile.

School
I don't want to make this too long, but this can coincide with the cultural mentality of achievement I talked about from the start.

The rest.. well, I don't have much of an opinion it at this moment.
