Culture Definition | Psychology

Culture is the entire collection of behaviors, attitudes, ideas, and traditions of a particular group of people or society. These traditions and group behaviors are often passed down generationally and can take a long time to change. Most societies have unique cultures, although geographically similar ones can share certain traits or norms. Due to globalization in the past half-century, many aspects of our cultures are becoming blended over time. For instance, many people around the world will wear the same boring Nike, Addidas, or another branded shoe that fails to have any true substance to it.
