The Sociological Perceptive consists of three paradigms (1) symbolic interaction, (2) functionalism, and (3) conflict theory.&nbsp. Sociologists take into account the different factors that cause action.&nbsp. &nbsp.Symbolic interaction is how actions are governed by symbols.&nbsp. That is, a man wears a wedding ring on his ring finger is assumed to be married.&nbsp. Is he more married, or less&nbsp.2married than the man who does not wear one?&nbsp. No, society expects him to wear a wedding ring on his ring finger to tell people that he is married.&nbsp. According to the functionalist, the input of all the agencies in society is needed in order for it to function as a whole.&nbsp. Society is interdependent, it is held together by the contributions of all its institutions.&nbsp. Functionalism promotes order, stability, and productivity.&nbsp. &nbsp. The conflict theory focuses on the negative and blames society for inequality.&nbsp. It encourages revolutions in the name of justice.&nbsp. &nbsp.It contends that the rich and powerful enforce their order on the poor.&nbsp.&nbsp. Sociological imagination and sociological perceptive are concepts employed by a sociologist to describe how society is influenced by norms, values, and institutions.&nbsp.
