If so, how do you think this person acquired these views. A good education can make the child a good citizen, while a bad education can turn him into a criminal. If we gave her some food and utensils, she would eat with her hands and not know how to use the utensils. He differentiates his father from his mother and then integrates him into the social system. It is a feeling of self-glorification. Social Psychology. The first aspect of individualisation consists in the process of becoming different from other people. It is an incessant process. There are four factors of this process of learning. The Importance of Socialization. The onslaught of urbanization has abolished the neighborhood system and snatched playmates from the child who now plays with electronic games than with the neighborhood children.’ Similarly religion has a lesser hold in an urban social and state authority is more disobeyed than obeyed. It is socialization which turns the child into a useful member of the society and gives him social maturity. Therefore Gardner Murphy says that the self is “the individual as known to the individual”. With a wide age and experience gap separating the child from his parents, he cannot understand fully the logic and nature of all that they transmit to him. The parents, therefore, are the first persons who socialize the child. But to explain human behaviour In terms of instinct is fallacious because the human being at birth probably has no complete instinct but only certain elements of them, such as reflexes and urges. But acquiring the attitudes of others towards himself is not sufficient for the individual. The self of a person is what he consciously or unconsciously conceives himself to be. The relation between the child and his playmates is one of equality. The environment of a family influences the growth of a child. Victor was thought to be about age 12 and to have been abandoned some years earlier by his parents; he was unable to speak and acted much more like a wild animal than a human child. The new-born infant has needs like those for food and clothing that press for satisfaction. The speed and area of identification increase with the growth in age. Take a moment and write down all the differences you would find. Man does not come to form opinions about him unless and until he comes into contact with other people and knows their opinions about him. Neither group developed normally, although the monkeys cuddling with the fake mothers fared somewhat better than those that were totally isolated. Importance of Human Relation are as follows: 1. Psychoanalysts have proved that a man behaves in society according to whatever he has become in the family. By showing the dire effects of social isolation, the Harlows’ experiment reinforced the significance of social interaction for normal development. The improvement of socialization offers one of the greatest possibilities for the future alteration of human nature and human society. Socialization converts man, the biological being into man, the social being. These theories have been propounded by Cooley, Mead and Freud. By this Mead, George H. means that the self can be both subject and object to itself. My face radiates on the ruins. According to MacIver individualization is “the process in which men become more autonomous or self- determining in which they advance beyond mere imitativeness or acceptance of standards which come to them with only an outer sanction, in which they become less bounce by tradition and custom in the regulation of their lives, less submissive to authority and dictation in matters of thought and opinion recognising that each is a unique focus of being and can achieve the ends of his life only as these grow clear in his own consciousness and become the objects of his own will. The people isolated from other people develop different types of personality. This process of adjustment may be termed socialization. It designates all of the social processes and pressures by which the norms and standards of a group or community are inculcated in the beliefs and behaviours of the individual members. After being shuttled from one residence to another for her first 5 months, Anna ended up living with her mother in her grandfather’s house and was kept in a small, airless room on the second floor because the grandfather was so dismayed by her birth out of wedlock that he hated seeing her. It may he conveyed through language, pictures or some similar medium. I prepared a colossal picture of my royal personage, and inscribed my might and sublimity on it. At first the child utters some random syllables which have no meaning, but gradually he comes to learn his mother-tongue. Intense training afterward helped Isabelle recover, and 2 years later she had reached a normal speaking level for a child her age (Davis, 1940). Later attempts were made to teach her to speak. Would it not affect your feelings about yourself? The heart of socialization is the development of the self. Freud, the founder of the school of psycho analysis, claims the sex instinct to be the source of all human endeavours. In general, the monkeys were not able to interact later with other monkeys, and female infants abused their young when they became mothers. Man lives in a group and while living so he has to conform to the traditions, beliefs and ideals of the group. They are unlearnt and even unmodifiable. The knowledge of such things is necessary from the social point of view. So the process of individualization is carried not only by the individual himself but also by the society. He does not possess those behaviour mechanisms which make an individual apart and a member of any group. A person with socialized attitudes would not do any work which is socially harmful. The feeling of estrangement of becoming solitary may lead an individual to introspection and inwardness. The social circumstances preceding his birth lay down to a great extent the kind of life he is to lead, the parent’s courtship, and marital selection, his customs concerning pregnancy and birth and the whole system of cultural practices surrounding the family are important for the child’s growth. A brief description of these four factors is necessary: Imitation is copying by an individual of the actions of another. His training varies in content and significance according as it is acquired from one or the other source. It does not stop at a certain age, but instead continues throughout life. However, the socialization of adults can be a prolonged and difficult process. The child sees his parents going to the temple and performing religious ceremonies. It develops in him the community feeling. It is based on cooperation and mutual understanding. In the school the child gets his education which moulds his ideas and attitudes. Could this assumption imply that children with severe developmental disabilities, who cannot undergo effective socialization, are not fully human? A child, when forced to study, may associate education with physical punishment, and may turn out truant. The knowledge about ourselves comes to us from the reaction of other persons. To take an example the knowledge of sex relations is considered in our society something undesirable for a youth until he gets married. The individual comes to feel himself as superior and separate from others and evaluates himself in high terms. These relationships the child learns through the process of socialization. Without socialization, we could not have our society and culture. Thus the toys with which he plays, the picture-book which he enjoys or looking at the mother who feeds him become the objects of his identification. He says, ‘The function of the ego is that of the rider guiding the horse, which is the id. Then he reacts himself to this judgment as he imagines it. It is the means of cultural transmission. Suggestion is the process of communicating information which has no logical or self-evident basis. As newcomers become socialized, they learn about the organization and its history, values, jargon, culture, and procedures. I built a pillar of still living bodies and another pillar of heads.
