Cultural code defines a set of images that are associated with a particular set of stereotypes in our minds. This is sort of cultural unconscious, which is hidden even from our own understanding, but is also seen in our actions. The cultural codes of a nation helps to understand the behavioral responses characteristic of that nation's citizens. The key codes in understanding specific behaviors differentiate between religion, gender, relationships, money, food, health, and cultures.
There are three kinds of global cultural codes: preliterate (traditional), literary and screen full. Each type contains basic cultural code, opened to self-generation of new, secondary cultural codes.
