The theory of acculturation can be broken down to include a few different topics; these include learning a new language, immersion, assimilation, and integration. If we know our norms and rituals only then we can build up an effective personality that can survive in this dynamic era. Acculturation theorists, particularly in the field of cross cultural psychology, often draw upon their dispassionate, etic and empiricist ethnographic work to develop their theoretical frameworks of acculturation, and then systematically formulate psychometric instruments to measure acculturation. Commonly, these measures have reduced complex socio-psychological processes of acculturation to concrete, compartmentalized constructs, such as language use and preference, social affiliation, daily living habits, cultural traditions, communication styles, cultural identity and pride, perceived prejudice and discrimination, generational status, family socialization and cultural values.
