According to the theory, humans have a strong need to be valued by other people. Human relations deforms by social rolls that tell people how to react and act in different situations. The theories explained hidden social rules that tell how to act in a number of situations. My survey showed that young people did not feel any group pressure to drink alcohol. The survey also showed that alcohol played a big part in the social life of young people. (Less)
