Social Norms Agreement
Social norms generally evolve to facilitate interaction between individuals and others in social groups (Cialdini & Trost, 1998); Turner, 1991). Our ability to meet normative expectations is the key to meeting our basic need to belong (Baumeister & Leary, 1995). Social belonging and exclusion are supposed to play a central role in the motivational component of normative influence (Cialdini & Trost, 1998); Turner 1991). They can be associated with the actual presence of other people, for example. B be congratulated by another person or receive derogatory comments from another person. Social norms can also be associated with the imaginary or implicit presence of other people, for example.B. remember to be congratulated by another person or to receive derogatory comments from another person (Cialdini & Trost, 1998); Turner, 1991). Social norms can therefore have a motivating effect on the action of individuals through the real, imaginary or implicit presence of others. Like other socially learned contingencies, these expectations can evolve dynamically based on situational needs and repeated experiences (Giguère, Vaswani, &Newby-Clark, 2015; Vaswani, Newby-Clark & Giguère, 2015; See Prentice, 2000). Group tolerance for deviations varies by adherence; Not all members of the group receive the same treatment for normal injuries. Through compliance, individuals can build up a «reserve» of good conduct against which they can borrow later.
These idiosyncratic credits offer theoretical currency to understand variations in the group`s behavioral expectations.  For example, a teacher may more easily forgive a heterosexual student for misrehaving – who has made savings of «good credits» in the past – than a repeat disruptive student. While past performance can help create special credits, some members of the group have higher credit first.  Individuals may import idiosyncrasy credits from another group; Childhood movie stars, for example, who enroll in college may have more leeway to adopt academic standards than other first-year students who arrive. Finally, executives or people in other high-status positions may start with more credits and sometimes appear «above the rules.»   However, even their characteristic credits are not bottomless; Although they are kept at a more lenient level than the average member, leaders may still face group refusal if their disobedience becomes too extreme. Beyond basic social norms, public opinion is clear and decisive on certain issues. . .
