Interpersonal and Group Behaviour

How does my behaviour affect others? How do others affect me?

Why do some people seem to behave
differently around different people?

These questions are concerned with aspects of social psychology. This specialist field of study focuses on how behaviour and perceptions of self and others are shaped by social and cultural influences including the attitudes and behaviours of groups.



    Personality can be defined as a dynamic and organized set of characteristics possessed by a person that uniquely influences his or her cognitions, motivations, and behaviours in various situations.
