Socialisation, Culture and Organisations
The close connection between identity-formation, socialisation and culture has been analysed by Berger and Luckmann (1967). They define successful socialisation as when someone has achieved “a high degree of symmetry between objective and subjective reality” (op. cit., p. 163). If, as Berger and Luckmann maintain, culture and socialisation are inseparable, this would mean that the individual accepts most of the cultural norms of whatever society s/he happens to be in.
Kroger (2007) identifies five approaches to identity formation: historical, structural, sociocultural, narrative and psychosocial.
