The social position element concerns the role played by the actor (legal entity or individual person) within the social organisation as well as professions (with the reputation or honours that may be attached to them) and statuses (prestigious or not).
- Official position: specific position (and not abstract or generic) linked to the functioning of a specific institution. Official positions are included with social positions but are also characterised by a specific type.
- Title: all diplomas, orders, decorations, academic titles, academic credentials, titles of nobility, etc.
