that tooOriginally Posted by Victor
what i do find interesting is that i have found a particular ease of communication with people of similar socioeconomic backgrounds. it's like a potential area of awkwardness is just not present, which can be comfortable - there's less hesitation in talking about our childhoods or worrying about offending. but there are snobby and crude people of all SES backgrounds.
and that goes hand in hand with cultural background too. i can pinpoint a new york long islander in a crowd just because i've grown up around them, and i know how to talk with them. it's a somewhat superficial level of understanding, i guess, but it's still pleasant in a lot of ways.
all that said, i've never had an experience where socioeconomic or cultural background was very significant in me liking or not liking a person.
