This individual assignment requires you to examine your own cultural identity – to describe how you define yourself as a cultural being – and to show how that affects your communication style and consumption patterns.
The following questions are to help you construct your definition (you are not required to answer every question but the following serves as a guideline and there may be points you would like to include in your paper that aren't addressed by these questions):
What are my racial, ethnic, national origins?
Are there particular myths or stories I remember from childhood that have helped to define me?
Are there particular rituals I remember from childhood that have helped define me?
How does my personal cultural profile affect my relationship to the wider Malaysian culture?
How does my personal cultural profile affect the rituals I participate in now or the stories I tell?
How does my personal cultural profile affect how I communicate both informally with friends and family, and in more formal settings (such as in your part-time employment or in a society/association)?
How has my cultural identity enabled or restricted me in the brands/products/product categories that I purchase, and whether or not I or my family am/are still subscribing to this cultural identity?
