I always thought there was one type of socialization, which was just socializing with people. I learned that there are two types of socialization that occur throughout the life course. Anticipatory socialization and re-socialization. Anticipatory socialization is when someone practices for future relationships and or future job opportunities. Re-socialization is stopping old habits and accepting new behavior patterns as part of a transition. I did not know that when your practicing what you are going to say for an interview or what you’re going to say to someone in any situation had a name for it. I never really thought there was anything more to it. This just goes to show that there is more to almost everything in life. You just have to look deeper.
