A Rubric for Mapping Social, Cultural and Religious Group Taxonomies

Part of negotiating our access to diverse groups, better understanding their positions and anticipating their responses is figuring out how they work. The goal is to create a map to analyze how the group things and where the thinking takes them.

Map Their Center Set Values and Commitments

  • What sacred texts do they appeal to or are committed to?
  • What leaders do they identify, esteem and emulate?
  • What values do they cherish and wish to preserve?

Map Their Bounded Set Shibboleths

  • What hot button positions do they ferociously defend?
  • What behaviors get individuals kicked out, shunned, or excluded from the community?
