Cultural truisms refer to attitudes and beliefs that are widely shared and rarely challenged in a society.

In psychology, "cultural truisms" are statements or beliefs that are widely accepted as true within a particular culture. Cultural truisms may be related to a variety of topics, including social norms, values, beliefs, and customs. Here are a few examples of cultural truisms:

  1. "Honor your parents."
  2. "The customer is always right."
  3. "Time is money."
  4. "Cleanliness is next to godliness."
  5. "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth."

Cultural truisms are often passed down from generation to generation and may be deeply ingrained in a culture. They can play a significant role in shaping the way that people think and behave within a particular culture.
