I am feeling really frustrated. Can you please guide me in answering those questions.

How might religious, cultural, or personal beliefs influence how an event is interpreted? How might a person's mood, personality, or situation influence how he or she interprets this event?

Please help. thank you.

    Think about how different people might view these scenes:

    1. Two men, cheek to cheek, and hugging on a street corner
    2. A slender young woman in a skimpy halter top and very short shorts
    3. A man on his knees with his forehead on the sidewalk
    4. A mother with 4 children under school age

    Interpretations:
    1. This is common practice in southern European countries. A gay person might interpret differently than a religious conservate.

    How might other people interpret these scenes?
