Abstract:

An exploratory study of the evaluation, potency, activity, and familiarity judgments of samples of Mainstream and Hispanic male, Navy recruits, concerning 50 concepts, showed a great deal of overlap in the meaning of these concepts held by these samples. The few findings of the present study, when contrasted with the numerous findings of cultural differences identified in our studies of norms and roles suggest the hypothesis that acculturation has the effect of shifting the meaning of concepts towards convergence with the meanings they have in the Mainstream but has lesser effects on norms and role perceptions.
