This always puzzles me how a group can think totally different from the individual persons who form the group. Group behaves like a person in itself where it has it’s own mindset and way of doing things. Being a part of the group changes the thinking of the individual as well. He may become more aggressive in the approach he have or he may end up being little diluted in his approach.
In history we have seen groups changing the course of the society and playing an important role in shaping the society as it is. All the movements start with small groups.
Groups also help people finding the connection with each other. People feel connected by being a part of a group and feel stronger because they feel they are not the only one with that thought process and they feel there are people who think like him and will support him.
Being a part of a group is very important for every person, In life we are part of many groups like family which is the first and the most intimate group we join, our neighborhood, our friends, classmates, book clubs, office groups and many others. These groups end up shaping our lives.
I would like to end this by telling a very important group I’m part of which is the group of bloggers and I feel privileged to be a part of it.
Your comments means a lot to me so do share your love and affection. Stay blessed :)
