Is the movement between social classes hampered by circumstances? Part 1 (introduction)

Theory: Is the movement between social classes is hampered by circumstances?

Over the course of all human history, every person has been born into a social class whether that be rich, middle class or poor, in the UK there are arguably six social classes, the elite, the established middle class, the technical middle class, the traditional working class, the emergent service sector and finally the precariat class. How people respond to these social influences can vary and is not necessarily predictable however often the case is that people are born into a class and live and die in the same class. Being raised in the same cultural surroundings for a life time usually brings about similar response patterns, which can become so deeply imbedded in the human mind that they often operate without the individuals being fully aware of them creating habits, work ethics and the mentality that often reflects onto a persons offspring that causes a constant cycle of the same social class, if the cycle can be broken it is feasible to predict that that the individual who breaks it can rise up a class or two and it is likely that his or hers future family will be a class higher than their for fathers and mothers.
