There are five major perspectives of psychology used to explain a human behavior and mental processes. These five perspectives that I am referring to are Neuroscience, Psychodynamic, Behavioral, Cognitive and Humanistic

The instruction that I have in my class is to select two of the perspectives above; I choose the behavioral and the cognitive perspective. Then the assignment instructed me to explain how culture, ethnicity, and race may influence ones behavior connected with these two perspectives that I choose which are the behavioral and the cognitive perspectives.

Can someone please explain to me pacifically how a behavioral and cognitive perspective influences one's culture, ethnicity, and race?

I am not sure if I chose the the right two perspectives. Did I choose the right two psychological perspective out of the five major perspective that explains how culture, ethnicity, and race may influence ones behavior?

    These sites explain these two perspectives.

    You chose the right two perspectives. Think about specific behaviors. Smoking and promiscuity are accepted in some groups and shunned in others. Choosing a mate is done by individuals in some cultures, while mates are chosen by parents in other cultures. Consider the treatment of women in some cultures.
