-'''Salvador Dalí''' ([[May 11]] [[1904]] [[January 23]] [[1989]]) was a [[Surrealist]] [[Spanish art]]ist and one of the most financially successful [[20th century art|painters of the 20th century]].

At this, Dalí retorted, "Le surréalisme, c'est moi." [[André Breton]] coined the [[anagram]] "avida dollars" (for ''Salvador Dalí''), which more or less translates to "eager for dollars," by which he referred to Dalí after the period of his expulsion; the surrealists henceforth spoke of Dalí in the past tense, as if he were dead. The surrealist movement and various members thereof (such as [[Ted Joans]]) would continue to issue extremely harsh polemics against Dalí until the time of his death and beyond.+

Gibson found out that "Dalí" (and its many variants) is an extremely common surname in Arab countries like [[Morocco]], [[Tunisia]], [[Algeria]] or [[Egypt]].

Recognition in sociology is public acknowledgement of person's status or merits (achievements, virtues, service, etc).

When some person is recognized, he or she is accorded some special status, such as a name, title, or classification. Recognition can take many forms, such as mention in the mass media.

Historical examples

The Qianlong Emperor of China used large circular logos the size of a dinner plate to distinguish members of his family from his Han subjects. Their symbol of privilege was a Mandarin square on their clothing.

Acculturation

It becomes easier for people to be accepted into some social process if they allow themselves to fit into a social identity, as a signal that they implicity accept some social norm. Thus the use of uniform dress is a signal for both group inclusion and acceptance. Gangs use signals and dress for this purpose.

Dress codes and norms also occur for religious groups.

In employment

As a means to increase productivity, communication, and satisfaction in the workplace, recognition is a tool used by many successful organizations to address these challenges. Recognition can be used in multiple models, including manager-to-employee, employee-to-manager, and peer-to-peer. In terms of employment, individuals within an organization can acknowledge each other for great attitudes, individual efforts and team contributions that help build a great culture and positive work environment.

Recognition in the workplace can be a monetising activity, a complementary activity, or both. In terms of monetised activities, organizations will recognize employees with additional compensation (bonuses) or items that have a monetary value (tickets, trips, etc.). In terms of complementary activity, organizations will recognize employees through avenues such as broadcasting (notice to fellow employees) or public recognition with a “thank you”, “kudos”, or “congratulations”.
