Approach/Avoidance I

I am very interested by anthropological patterns of approach/avoidance behaviors and what they may reveal about the incorporation of taboos into cultures. In modern society the quickest way to determine an individual's self-imposed borders is via language. By adeptly titrating perceived cultural taboos into the conversation, one may determine one's relativisitic level of open-mindedness and as a secondary result, that individual's go-to methods for coping with unexpected situations. Thus forming the quick sketch of an individual in the archetypal first impression.
