The use of the term mongrel portrays a brutal and merciless person out to cause insufferable pain to his victims and to the group as a whole because the population in question relates such conduct to this type of social characterization. The outcome of all these words is a clear conviction of the authenticity of the subject’ s character as described by the categorization. In the second extract, Bryant is not described as a cold-blooded killer dogged by tragedy because, by the mere mention of the word tragedy, it turns the whole perspective of the extract to that of depicting Bryant as a victim of circumstances and ill fortune.
According to the extract, he is considered to have been a sociable person who once had friends and even acquaintances. He may not have been a cold-blooded killer because the membership characterizations used on him predispose and based his actions more on chance, and not a definite category-bound membership. The description of Bryant by his friends and acquaintances give credibility to the accuracy of the descriptions, in the abstract because those who were close and interacted with him were better suited to notice and observe what is presented by the extract (Benwell & Stokoe, 2006).
The categories used to describe Bryant are slow, mentally ill and even in light of this, he was able to acquire the trust and friendship of a rich woman who lived in a mansion. This illustrates Bryant’ s hidden ability to socialize positively with the elite of his population, which is not mentioned in the extract. These categories shed light on the diversity of the group, which Bryant belongs to because there is a stark contrast between the social categorization detected from the neighbor and the one offered by his friends and acquaintances.
The comments on the extracts are generally accurate because they provide the required evidence to conclude the extract as the foreclosure. The comments do so by showing that an individual has not had a chance to explore other avenues to determine if there are other career choices that might interest him other than law.
