This is a common question and one that I sometimes get asked in classes. While some people have the answer and some don’t, I think most people are familiar with the idea of peer groups. Peer groups are groups of people who are in the same social circle and who interact on a regular basis.
Think of a group of people who know each other. They know each other because they’ve gone to school together and they know each other’s interests. They know each other because they’re the same age and they know each other’s families. Now think of the same group of people but from a different social background. Now think of it as an entirely new group.
Peer groups can be made up of any number of people, but they generally have a certain level of mutual trust and respect. Peer groups are very difficult to form and may never be formed in the first place. Like everything else in society, peer groups come in different shapes and sizes.
Peer groups often have a very superficial (or not so) appearance. These are groups where people who are very similar to each other are drawn together. In many cases they are made up of people with similar backgrounds and interests.
Peer groups are made up of people who are the same age or similar education and income. They are generally made up of people who are friends, but may not have any real acquaintance with each other. These types of groups are very common in real life, where you meet new people and then you form your own group of friends.
The reason is that peer groups are the main way for people in one group to interact. For example, if you don’t see a friend in the group, you can’t join in.
Although peer groups are the main way people in one group can interact, it’s not the only way. There are other ways too, like online groups, and even the idea of communities. A community is just a group of people who are connected by common interest. If you have a group of people who are into music, then you can create a community of music artists.
Most people who create communities tend to end up being better at being in those communities than they are in the outside world (i.e. work or school, for example). I like to think of this as self-awareness. A person is able to see what other people are doing and what they are capable of, and how effective they are at it.
People with self-awareness tend to be better at being in the outside world than they are in the inside. Those who have self-awareness tend to be more like the outside world than they are like the inside world. The reason for this is this: people can’t see themselves as something other than an individual, but rather a small group of people who are connected through common interests.
You can actually see the groups that you’re in by the way you respond to them. For example, you’re in a peer group with your friends and they’re in a peer group with people you don’t know very well. I’ve seen this happen more times than I care to admit and it’s an interesting experiment to see how much influence the outside world has on your inside world.
