Deviance is defined as a violation of cultural norms, but not all deviant behavior is negative. A sociologist can examine deviant behavior through a theoretical perspective to try to understand its causes. A symbolic interactionist view would explain deviance as a product of social stratification. For example, people born into a lower economic class may have limited access to resources such as education and income; therefore, they may struggle more significantly to overcome those limitations.
