When examining content sociologists identify the statuses of those people involved. Once statuses have been identified, they focus on the roles expected of each status in relation to the other, with emphasis on rights and obligations. Sociologists use a dramaturgical model to think about how people enact roles. Thus they focus on impression management (how people manage the setting, their dress, their words, and their gestures) to correspond to role expectations. Knowing about status, roles, impression management, and front/back stages helps sociologists predict much of the content of social interaction. During interaction people also position explanations for their own and others’ behavior and act accordingly. A theoretical approach that sociologists draw upon to understand how people arrive at explanations is attribution theory.
