Do you think individual societies breed a certain type of person?
I say individual because, although we are a macro society, there are various micro societies operating under the banner of religion, culture, and country for example. I am more interested in country in this question. I understand there is group consensus within a society but I am wondering if for example a violent society could breed a nervous individual. Would this nervousness shape their psyche? How would this impact a person psychologically and a society at large.
In a society with no or little infra structure could this breed a “man for himself”?
I sometimes wonder if lack of simple structures like “calling a policeman” and no one turns up can lead to despair in a person and therefore knowledge that life is pointless
