Storey, 1999, p. 128) Despite the importance that is placed on the act of consumption, in particular on its ability to reveal aspects of personal character, there is no suggestion from Storey that our consumption patterns actually: For Storey, like so many others, our social being, which as he suggests is reflected in our cultural consumption, is greatly influenced by traditional forms of social stratification. For Bauman too, consumption is a reflection of self, but as was noted earlier in this chapter he is one of relatively few sociologists who suggests that traditional social hierarchies do not now greatly influence the construction of self.

This is because the more that settings such as McDonalds dominate, the less there is a choice to experience other settings, and so even those whose capital predisposes them to prefer other settings will be forced into standardized settings. Ritzer does allow for some minor class-based differences, arguing that the greatest propensity to prefer standardized settings will be found among the working classes and the least among the upper classes with the middle classes somewhat ambivalent, but suggests that these differences gradually disappear as the logic of standardization spreads.
