Terminology[ edit ] Within the concepts of sociologycliques are a formation of two or more individuals who share bonding characteristics that allow for them to identify with one another to form a social network.
Those within the group communicate and associate with one another more so than with those outside of the group. One person may be part of multiple cliques, each forming and functioning independently from one another.
Cliques are relevant in society due to the social influence or peer pressure that results from the interactions with individuals who share a common characteristic.
The outcomes associated with clique formations may be endless with varying degrees of influence. Social isolation[ edit ] In their article "Social Isolation In America",  Paolo Parigi and Warner Henson II define social isolation as "the degree of apartness of an entity; [which] may have structural or subjective interpretations.
A clique can also involve a high degree of social commitment to a specific group. A stronger level of commitment results in an individual having a reduced amount of interaction with other social groups. Cliquish behaviour often involves repetition in regards to activities, vernacular, preferences and manner, which can result in conflict with other cliques, creating "outsiders".
Members[ edit ] Different factors affect the way cliques are established and who is included within its membership. In some cases, people are subconsciously placed in a clique by association.
For example, joining a basketball team usually causes others to automatically perceive you as an "athlete". Many people may gravitate toward a clique subconsciously through the way they are perceived or whom they may be associated with. Sharing similar interests is the most common way cliques are formed.
As people interact with each other doing the simple things that they enjoy doing, they may find themselves drifting towards or becoming attracted to others that share the same passion.
This usually causes one to gain confidence by being surrounded by people who share similar interests and it may cause an individual to feel more socially accepted.
Ethnicity usually plays a role according to setting or time frame. In today's society race still is prevalent, and therefore, cliques solely based on race have been formed. One memorable example of such a clique could be the Ku Klux Klana notorious white supremacy group. Members of cliques often create their own distinct dress code and communicate with one another in a unique manner.
As a result, this makes a clique unique and gives each member a reassuring feeling that they belong to that specific group. As these cliques come together it isn't hard to distinguish one from the other.
For example, Deadheads, the followers of the band The Grateful Dead, identify one another with various forms of tie-dyed clothing.
Interactions among members of a clique can also lead to organized social events, such as parties, significant dates, or private meetings.
Clique members have a strong commitment to their respected group. In regards to this, being present at social events is seen as mandatory. Considering this, it shows the firmness of cliques and how people ultimately conform to these specific groups. Tina Abbott, in her book "Social and Personality Development" goes into detail about how these members conform to their specific group.
As the young person struggles to become independent from their parents, they use the security provided by the peer group and the self-confidence that comes with it, to take the final step towards independence". The existence of homophily is also very prevalent in today's society.
This concept can be seen as a possible main cause for clique formation. On the subject of homophily, people come together and link up for many different reasons. The most typical reason is, simply, people who are close in location easily bond with each other.
Also, people that meet through family, workplace, and any activities that place people in contact with others, often form personal relationships. In some cases, the impact of homophily can be seen when people in cliques get married. Network formation[ edit ] This involves meeting new people to form relationships and work together to gain better opportunity.
Some people find that being associated with a clique is a way to find or gain a better chance at success. For example, many join a sorority or fraternity to gain an advantage at getting a job because they may be hired by someone who may be affiliated.
Cliques go hand in hand in the way people network and are especially prevalent for those looking for jobs.
An informal clique may consist of a person's friend group or co-workers while it may also identify other more informal groups, such as criminal gangs. A formal clique is composed of members who have identifiable roles and interactions with one another and is found in the structure of numerous professional organizations, businesses, and even family structure.
Culture is a very influential factor in the organization of clique structures because the boundaries established through differences in cultural aspects are persistent, even when the membership varies from time to time. For example, the differences in language, beliefs, traditions, etc.
As individuals become adults, their social interpretations alter and the formation of their cliques originates from their immediate environment, rather than from common social characteristics. A clique can develop in a number of different ways and within environments that consist of individuals who interact on a regular basis.Any measurable degree of wound healing has failed to occur over the prior month.
