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:
- "Honor your parents."
- "The customer is always right."
- "Time is money."
- "Cleanliness is next to godliness."
- "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.
