2. Một số câu hỏi và cách trả lời chủ đề Value
- What kinds of possessions give status to people in your country?
I think that depends on which classes that people belonging. As people in the manual working class, the possession of houses could be recognized as a sign of status, this group of people includes blue-collar workers who just work to make ends meet and buy a house. However, people in the middle class and upper class normally have a wider range of possession that can give status to them. These all people are well off and reach the dizzy heights of managers, presidents, and CEOs, as a result, they often pay through the nose on pricey products like clothing, cars, villas, and mansions.
2. Has it always been the same or were different possessions thought of as valuable in the past?
Honestly, I don’t know, I’m still too young to know the similarities and differences. But I think some valuable things like gold and jewelry could be the same because they are all expensive from the past to now. The differences could be noticed in the wider range of possession. Cars and many other high-end products have just been imported to Vietnam in a few years, so people couldn’t own these things as valuable possession in the past. A brand new Mercedes-Benz or a Hermes Himalayan Crocodile Birkin, to a certain extent, can be seen as more valuable than jewelry, gold, and even houses.
3. Why do you think people need to show their status in society?
I think this could be because all people want to receive a good impression from other people. Although we all are taught “don’t judge a book by its cover”, we all form an impression of other people at the very first sight. Therefore, people including some others who don’t even hit the jackpot often throw money down the drain on luxury items. Moreover, people often have easier lives and more opportunities when they receive a good impression from other people.
