Individuals/Sherif: Carolyn), the individual should not be conceived in isolation from the rest of the world, but as interdependent with it, so that the individual ‘is not merely the recipient of sociocultural influences … [but] is an active participant in the reaction of social influences’ (Sherif and Sherif, 1969(1): 9). [Sherif] believed that ‘interpersonal relations occur within larger organized contexts, so that it is very difficult to consider other individuals as discrete social stimuli’ (1969(1): 15). Individual behaviour, while made possible only through individual minds, cannot be understood through analysis of those individual minds individually and removed from the social context. >Group behavior/Sherif.
