Culture and Values One of the distinguishing factors of culture is that of shared values. Cultural values are learned and reinforced through the socialization process and then passed from one generation to the next. This learning process can be both direct and subtle, but the result is that people absorb their culture values, which their thoughts and behaviors begin to reflect.
