"Human behavior" is expressed as effect of how we come to self identify, with our body oriented 'sense of self'! "Every decision you make, stems from what you think you are and represents the value you put upon yourself" ["A Course in Miracles", ACIM]!

Yes. Culture provides many of the categories and ideals that individuals strive to adopt (or else to avoid) in their lives. Whether to be aggressive or passive, stoic or easily excitable, independent or collaborative, all of these attributes (and many more) are influenced by cultural images of what successful or interesting or nice people should be like.
