Socialization is the process of learning social norms in a given culture. This can be gender roles, or rules of what is expected in society whether they are moral or not. Socialization is not the actual acquisition of rules and roles of a culture, rather is the process in which a person accepts and implements those expectations. Socialization is not solely determined by the environment, but results from the interaction of an individual's genetic make-up, personality, educational experience, and environmental influences.
