    If by "ascribed" you mean recognition of wisdom I would say this is true, but only in the right company of other wise people. Otherwise I think "paper achievements" are more relevant and taken into account.

    • But what about ascribed/achieved statuses in regards to social class and background?

    Oh I remember some of that stuff from Intro Sociology. You won't find test answers here, best to download a study guide for free
