Psychologists most commonly use the term
  "identity" to describe PERSONAL IDENTITY,
  or the idiosyncratic things that make a person
  unique.

Meanwhile, sociologists often use the term to
 describe SOCIAL IDENTITY, or the collection
 of group memberships that define the
 individual.

However, these uses are not proprietary, and each
  discipline may use either concept.
   CULTURAL IDENTITY refers to the content
    of values as guiding principles, to meaningful
    symbols, and to life-styles that individuals
    share with others, though not necessarily
    within recognizable groups.
   Identity is a dynamic concept
   Each individual is seen to have a repertoire of
    identities open to them (social and personal),
    each identity informing the individual of who
    he is and what this identity entails. Which of
    these many identities is most salient for an
    individual at any time will vary according to
    the social context.
   SYMBOLS : words(languages) , gestures,
    images, objects (cloths, hairstyle, flags,...),...

   HEROES : persons ( dead or alive, ficiton or
    real) who can be considered as models for
    behavior...

   RITUALS : How to greet, social and religious
    ceremonies , politics, business... Things which
    stimulate the cohesion of a group.
