or bad, but a simple fact of life. Cohesion is demonstrated in comments like, Well do whatever it takes to make this happen. Comparison level only predicts how satisfied a new member will be with the social relationships within the group. By emphasizing this superordinate identity, individuals in both subgroups can share a common social identity. Group performance edit Forsyth suggests that while many daily tasks undertaken by individuals could be performed in isolation, the preference is to perform with other people. People think of values and attitudes as private, personal, and unique, but research shows that most personal attitudes arise from group norms.

"Evolutionary approaches to group dynamics: An introduction". These norms begin forming through a process known as convergence. According to the social exchange theory, group membership will be more satisfying to a new prospective member if the group's outcomes, in terms of costs and rewards, are above the individual's comparison level. 67 This dynamogenic factor is believed to have laid the groundwork for what is now known as social facilitationan "improvement in task performance that occurs when people work in the presence of other people". In Good to Great, Jim Collins described the following quality as being a key factor in all Good to Great companies: "On the one hand, they (good to great companies) stoically accepted the brutal facts of reality. In other words, norms are like a landscape. Categories edit Categories are characterized by a collection of individuals who are similar in some way. Examples of common barriers are: expectations and preconceptions; prejudices ; ideology, counterproductive norms, theology and solutions; the need to heal, convert, fix or solve and the need to control. Norms develop through three basic laws of human behavior demonstrated through relationships, teams, and organizations: Convergence, cohesion, conformity, in the same way that comprehending the law of gravity helps to understand the behavior of objects, comprehending the basic laws of group dynamics helps in understanding. A norm is any uniform attitude or action that two or more people share by virtue of their membership in a group. Zajonc hypothesized that compresence (the state of responding in the presence of others) elevates an individual's drive level which in turn triggers social facilitation when tasks are simple and easy to execute, but impedes performance when tasks are challenging. For example, Emile Durkheim described two forms of solidarity (mechanical and organic which created a sense of collective conscious and an emotion-based sense of community.
