Sample text

Some of these define benefit. When thinking of an individual, there is something outside the life space which the person does not have yet, but would benefit from acquiring. When thinking collectively about sub-populations, there is something outside the life space of its members which they do not yet have but likewise would benefit from acquiring. Some of what lies outside the life space is not related to benefit. For instance, a particular skill or capability, such as climbing a mountain, may lie outside a person’s current capacities but achieving that skill would not be a benefit since it is irrelevant to the person’s sense of well-being and outside his or her personal ambitions and hopes.

Norms and shared beliefs The term norm refers to behaviours regarded by members as either acceptable and appropriate, or unacceptable and inappropriate. For instance, a norm might exist in a group that everyone should have a chance to talk and express an opinion. Or a norm might pertain to how anger may be expressed: directly, or through sarcasm, joking or some other means. Some norms are explicit, some implicit. Some are brought into the group from the wider culture. If members belong to different outside sub-cultures, incompatible norms may be brought into the group.
