Excerpt addressing the topic of identity by geraldmclean (The Photograph, Vanguard to Identity)

“…the table below is intended to simplify and demonstrate understanding of a framework leading to personal identity.”

  • National Identity: – country of birth.
  • Ethnic Identity: – tribal identifier determined by bloodline.
  • Cultural Identity: National culture – morality, laws, and conventions.
    • Ethnic culture – practiced conscripts directly pertaining to the tribal group.
  • Social Identity: Social group – group identifiers and behaviour.
    • Social values – cultural, ethnic, and national values.
  • Moral Identity: Moral values – social group (peers), ethnic (Family), national values and laws, social, cultural, ethnic, and national values
  • Individual Identity: – idiosyncrasies of all of the above, unique.

Therefore, given the complexities of the individual, can a person be described in terms of merely a colour?
