So, it is no doubt our real world social lives are seeing some changes.
The Sociological Pursuit to Happiness How one depicts an “ideal society,” vs true reality is generally influenced by social factors. What is sociology and why are there so many different aspects? Some key points in the development and purpose of sociology are explained and studied through key components, research, theory, and people. A group’s character of ideas, thoughts, and behaviors are identified through influences of life. These ideas then create behaviors that influence and form a society.
Agents of specialisation include people, groups, institutions and ideas that we are surrounds us (Squirrell, 2017). Therefore, human beings are products of the society. As earlier noted, the primary group plays a very significant role in the development of the self. During socialisation, the human mind is very crucial. Cooley believed that the mind is social and it influences the mental abilities particularly imagination.
With the world evolving each day, the internet evolves with us. Therefore new websites are being created to fit the needs of each person, business, dating, friendships.

Further, they describe “TPB is an attitude-intention-behavior model which posits that an individual’s behavior is determined by perceived behavioral control and intention. This theory assumes that human actions are influenced by three kinds of beliefs. Behavioral beliefs are about likely outcome of behavior and normative beliefs represent expectation of others while control beliefs correspond for facilitating and impeding factors. TPB helps to understand how people’s behaviors are influenced by different forces. There can be identified two types of behavior namely deliberate and planned.
It is the realization of self potential and talents of an individual for the benefit and continuity of society and life.

Part II : Personal reflection After the research on the topic Social Competence, I have enriched the knowledge on this topic and the related theories and concepts. As part I mentioned, social competence has a lot of definitions, but I do believe the definition “The ability to achieve personal goals in social interaction while simultaneously maintaining positive relationships with others over time and across settings.” (Rubin & Rose-Krasnor, 1992) and the social competence prism (Rose-Krasnor, 1997) can express social competence most suitable.

Social environment deals with the environment which an individual sees around themselves on acquiring consciousness in the society. Philosophers like Freud have accepted the fact that social environment is very much responsible for changing in human behavior and its personality. Also physiologist emphases that the personality of an individual develop with in a social environment the way a person socializes effects person moral ideas, attitude and interest in the considered a person social self.

Like social learning theory says, the relationship between behavior and environment is heavily concerned the reciprocal, which people cope with physical surroundings by altering them.
The two studies were examined through distinct focal points of two different theoretical approaches, Leary’s sociometer theory (1999) and Henriques’ Unified Theory of Psychology (2011). The HUTP underlines that cultural aspect plays an important role in human self-esteem, thus, leads to the assumption that socialization will influence self-esteem, after controlling for social influence. On the other hand, Leary (1999) proposes that self-esteem is a measurement that monitors interactions between people and transports signals to the person to keep them in check with how socially acceptable their behaviors are. Hence, when people feel accepted or relationally valued by others, they should experience an increase level of self-esteem, whereas when they feel rejected or a lack of relational value, they should experience a comparatively low level of self-esteem. People have evolved to have a psychological gauge for sensing signals from these interactions concerning how well their behaviors are integrating them into society and how much they are being accepted or rejected (Anthony 2007, Leary
