Yes, Shirk (polytheism) has various degrees the highest of which is when we regard two or more individuals to be creators and effective in the affairs of the universe. One of the degrees of Shirk - perhaps its lowest level - is the Shirk which most people are afflicted with. That is when we believe that others are effective in matters which deal with our lives. For example, showing respect to the rich in hope of getting money or lowering oneself before powerful people are from the levels of Shirk. May God save all of us from all levels of Shirk.
