A person’s worth nowadays seems to be judged according to social status and material possessions. Old-fashioned values, such as honour, kindness and trust, no longer seem important. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

The qualities in olden times, which
defined
Suggestion
defining
the worth of a
person
, have fallen in importance and previously unimportant factors have gained priority. Qualities
such
as kindness,
honor
bestow honor or rewards upon
honour
and trust are no longer the defining factors of worth and social
status
has gained primary importance.
This
essay will discuss
this
statement and
it's
of a thing, of it; possessive form of "it"
its
accuracy. With the expansion of equality and poverty campaigns, people have become hyper aware about the social
status
of others.
This
means that when an individual comes into contact with a
person
of differing social
status
- his behaviour toward the
person
often corresponds to the
person
's socioeconomic
status
.
For instance
, the behaviour of an
indiviual
a human being
individual
towards a construction worker varies from that towards a wealthy
business man
a person engaged in commercial or industrial business (especially an owner or executive)
businessman
.
Although
,
this
behaviour can be either negative or positive, the core theme remains constant which is judgement.
For example
, the certain- perhaps unfair- expectations placed on the wealthy to be generous and
likewise
, accusations if donations are thought to be insignificant. People are judged based on their wealth and disrespected if the wealthy do not donate whilst people with a lower socioeconomic
status
are not burdened with the same expectations.
Similarly
, people of a lower socioeconomic
status
may be disregarded or treated with indifference due to their lack of monetary prosperity.
For example
, some restaurants may disregard
people
Suggestion
the people
of lower wealth and provide them with a low quality service-
soley
without any others being included or involved
solely
based on their apparent social
status
. Due to various campaigns, social
status
has been unintentionally ingrained in society- the mission to eradicate discrimination based on social
status
has unintentionally highlighted social
status
in society. As
such
campaigns were rare in olden times, social prosperity was an observation- not an aspect to be mindful of. Due to
this
,
worth
what thing
what
was defined by other factors
such
as kindness, trust and courage.
Although
, social
status
discrimination did exist, other factors took priority over
this
discrimination in defining the worth of a
person
.
For instance
, in a room full of people- courage, skill and justice declared the worth of a
person
rather than their economic background. To conclude, I agree to a great extent that the worth of a
person
is now decided based on social
status
due to hyper awareness caused by campaigns, etc.
