            Gender, race, and ethnicity have certainly affected my behavior; more specifically, in how I perceive other people. I have a diverse background, primarily because of the fact that my family hails from various countries. As such, I speak numerous languages, have traveled to numerous countries, and have been exposed and integrated into numerous cultures. I believe that I have a high level of acceptance for other people, which in turn, affects my overall behavior. I maintain that all people should be treated equally, maybe because of my diverse background, or maybe because I try to conform to traditional American values. As a man, I feel society as a whole has progressed, especially in the treatment and attitude of women in the workplace; I have seen, firsthand, how the behaviors of men have changed in this capacity over time. Even though there is still a glass ceiling, it is not as severe as it once was. On a personal level, I do find that my behavior does change towards other genders, races, and ethnicities when I am the target of their hatred. I am a sensitive person, and as a result of my diverse culture and background, I am especially susceptible to varying degrees of hate. At times, I find it difficult for me to not place a person who is expressing ill feelings toward me as a representative of their entire gender, race, and/or ethnicity. I need to remind myself that this person is just one person, and that s/he does not represent the overall perceptions of the entire group.

 

            I currently work with numerous people who are comprised of various genders, races, and ethnicities. One of the things I like most of my job is how everyone acts in a professional manner while at their desk or in the office. However, when my co-workers and I take a lunch break, I find that people tend to position themselves with people who share the same gender, race, and/or ethnicity. When this occurs, I notice big differences in attitudes and behaviors among the various groups. Some groups are soft-spoken, while others are loud; some are obnoxious, while others are delightful. There is certainly a difference in the way the various groups of people act in this setting. I do, nonetheless, try my very best to not generalize by not considering the groups as representatives of everyone that is like them. I always try to keep an open mind.
