Last week, you reviewed some of the ideas about how individuals arrive at their concept of “self.” This week, you will move on to explore the various kinds of groups to which individuals belong, as well as look at the various types of groups and some of the common and significant social groups. Groups can be divided into primary groups and secondary groups. Groups can further be identified as in-groups and out-groups. Consider the groups to which you feel you belong.
Provide an example of a primary and a secondary group to which you belong. How has technology affected the primary and secondary groups to which you belong? Also, consider the concept of in-groups and out-groups. Provide an example of where people may have been excluded or rejected based on this kind of group dynamic.
