Social influence refers to the ways in which external factors bring about change in an individual. An individual can change in the way they think and organize their behaviours and actions. There are three groups of social influence, including conformity, compliance, and obedience, affecting an individual 's everyday life. Conformity is a type of group behaviour in which a member changes their attitudes and beliefs to match those of others within the group (Constable, Shuler, Klaber, & Rakauskas, 2015). Similarly, compliance refers to when an individual accepts influence from a group to achieve a favourable reaction from them (Constable, Shuler, Klaber, & Rakauskas, 2015).
Social life is one of the aspects in life of a human being. It was an everyday activity that requires the connection of an individual externally in any ways, either verbally or non-verbally. Social life has a wide range of ideas subjecting, there are the social interaction, socialization, social relationship and even the studies that are associated to the social life like sociology. Baumister (2005) develop an idea that acquiring a social life require more skill, such us knowing how to make yourself attractive to others, what to wear and say, where to find them and which people might be receptive to becoming friends with you. The social life is a connective part of a person that has something to do with interacting with one another.
Social influence “refers to the myriad ways that people affect one another. It involves the changes in attitudes, beliefs, feelings, and behaviour that result from the comments, actions, or even the mere presence of others”. (Gilovich, Keltner & Nisbett, 2006, p. 276) Influencing others within ethical or unethical framework is part of everyday life. Different ways of persuasion are used in order to convince individuals to conform, resulting to the change of attitudes or beliefs. Friends try to influence others for their own benefit; industries do the same in order to sell their products, charities in order to attain funding and priests aiming to change beliefs.
Pro social behavior Introduction Human beings are essentially social beings, and everyone in the society is affected by each and every actions, thoughts and feelings that we make. Also we are influenced by the behavior of others. In the society we see different types of behavior and different types of people. So social psychology is something that tries to understand the human social behavior. Really social psychology helps the people to moderate and develop a good behavior; not only as a social being but also as an individual.
Regular conflicts in the society, occur due to cultural diversity. For instance, a particular Culture can influence the social organization of a community. Authority can in this case is the power that group members exert in decision making. That is individual resolutions made, relating to the group, normally affect the personal reactions when complex situations and circumstances confront the group. Charles Tilly had the idea that people have rational choices to make to defend their deeds (Tilly 2005: 24).
It is certainly interesting to analyse a religious organization through the lens provided by the concepts of queer theory. Still, UP ICTUS is an organization rooted in the Roman Catholic religion. And the Catholic Church did establish some standards on practices and activities which properly adhere to its teachings, thus perpetuating the concept of normativity in the religious community. To illustrate this, behaviour, practices, and attitudes of ICTUSians that are considered not that of a Catholic is frowned upon by the other members and the alumni. However, it must be noted that UP ICTUS is a student-led organization within the University of the Philippines, and the open and liberal ways of the organization could be because of the younger generation of members trying to change ways to fit in the current

What then is social influence? Influence is the ability of a leader to communicate ideas, gain acceptance, and motivate followers to support and execute the ideas through change. In psychology, social influence is defined as the process through which people make genuine changes to their behaviours and feelings as a result of relations with others who are seen to be similar, enviable or experts (Rashotte, 2006). 2.2 Sources of Social Influence The sources of social influence include family, friends, music, movie, past/present events, peers, race, class/status, fashion, Facebook, education, religion, coworkers, fraternities, what people think, what people do, what people say, and what people do not say. 2.3 Types of Social Influence There are five types of social influence in leadership.
Religion, according to social identity theory has been most powerful in providing insight into the relation between the self-concept and the social groups to which one belongs (Tajfel and Turner, 1979). Identifying with a group often gives us benefits to well-being (for instance, by offering support and a sense of belonging) (Baumeister and Leary, 1995; Haslam et al, 2009; Galen and Rogers, 2004; VonDras et al., 2007). Groups may be capable to achieving goals (for example, social change through political action (Verkuyten and Yildiz, 2007) that would otherwise be unattainable at the individual level (Haslam et al., 2009). As a social identity anchored in a system of building beliefs, religious affiliation should serve a uniquely powerful function in shaping psychological and social processes (George et al., 2002; Powell et al., 2003; Salsman and Carlson, 2005; Smith et al., 2003) From a social identity standpoint, threats to one’s self-esteem or well-being might be lessen by increasing identification with a group that offers high levels of status and support (Tajfel and Turner, 1979; Dulin et al., 2006; Galen and Rogers, 2004). Identification with one’s religious group may provide a sense of unwavering stability and solid ground, more so than would be gained from other social identities, perhaps stemming from highly organized support networks or the shared reliance on faith in a higher power (Graham and Haidt, 2010; Lim and Putnam, 2009; Bowie et al., 2006; Dulin et al.,
