All people in all places at all times have lived in social groups of some sort, and various sorts of behavior are promoted or prohibited in each of these groups. Knowledge about the creation, function, and dissipation of these groups can only help us to improve our own circumstances. An understanding of the creation, function, and dissipation of these groups necessarily enhances our awareness of their emergence as behavioral phenomena and therefore maximizes our potential. Consequently, the sociological perspective can enhance our personal functioning within the myriad of social groups which touch our lives.
