Reversible status is amorphous and may be attained or assigned in either way. Status may not alter at all if it is irreversible. Both attained status and attributed status include reversible and irreversible statuses.
According to Leo Francis Schnore, “reversible status” may shift in either direction and be “assigned” or “achieved”; for instance, a person’s income status can be high one year, low the next, and moderate the year after that.
