35 Examples of Status

 ,
Status, or social status, is the respect that a person holds in the eyes of others. This is normally earned with behavior but also has been commoditized as products and services that are meant to represent status. Status can also be ascribed from our identity, appearance and group memberships. Any social or personal characteristic that people commonly admire can be considered status. The following are common examples of status.

Achieved Status

Achieved status is admiration and respect that you have earned. For example, a high school student who has many friends who is widely perceived as popular.

Ascribed Status

Ascribed status is status that you have by default through no action of your own. For example, if you happen to be tall or from a wealthy family.

Commoditization of Status

In competitive and open markets, producers try to meet consumers every need. This can extend into virtually every corner of the human experience and human needs. For example, products and services that attempt to represent elements of status such as wealth, coolness, intelligence, fashionability, youth or altruism such as a sustainable product that is perceived as a symbol of social conscious.

Status Myths

A common myth regarding social status is that it is all about wealth. Wealth is one type of social status alongside the statuses listed above. For example, a person could be wealthy but lack other types of status such as intelligence, popularity, youthfulness and altruism such that they enjoy only one type of status.

Discussion

Status is situational. For example, people at your high school may perceive you as cool but when you enter university you may be perceived differently.
