- Cooperation: All societies are based on mutual cooperation between individuals and the community. The existence of the society depends on the cooperation between individuals. Cooperation is the process of sharing and helping each other in solving problems and removing difficulties. A family cannot remain together without an attitude of cooperation among its members. The same is true of society. Lack of cooperation hampers our progress. Daily life will also not run smoothly.
- Tolerance and understanding: Just Like there is cooperation in the society, so also there can be differences of opinion, disputes and conflicts. Disputes and conflicts arise when there is a lack of agreement in the opinions, ideas and views of the people. Prejudices or misconceptions about each other can also lead to conflicts. However, nobody is interested in keeping a conflict going for a long time. People find a way to solve conflicts through compromise and understanding. Thus, conflicts can end if people make efforts to understand each other and show a spirit of tolerance. An understanding attitude helps in new learning. We accept new ideas. This helps to further enrich social life. One can become more tolerant.
- An opportunity to perform different roles : In society, we play different roles. Each individual has several roles and the responsibilities and duties of every role are well-defined. While playing these roles at home and outside, we developed bonds with many people.
- Psychological development: From society one can learn their emotional capabilities and the power to think independently. It also provides the opportunity for expressing our thoughts and feelings.
- Development of inner talents/qualities: The development of our own artistic and other talents also takes place in society. Singers, musicians, social workers and others can all develop their qualities further because of the encouragement of society.
