Norms and values

The topic of norms and values is a very popular topic. Norms and values are very important in a culture. If a group of people accepts these and lives accordingly, control of it is no longer necessary. People are aware of their share and want their community to function well. Norms and values allow a group of people to be positive about each other so that each person can live properly. These 2 words are often put together, so it is difficult to distinguish them. However the difference must be clear so that everyone is aware of it.

• Standards and values are the basis of a well-functioning society,
• Values give form to a person so he/she can function better socially.

If we look at norms, these are rules that have been written and agreed upon by society. Everyone must adhere to this. If it doesn’t happen, there are several penalties that can follow. If you look at values, they are rules that have been discussed with one another, but there is no real punishment. As a person you keep yourself to these rules. You do this because you have self-esteem and respect people around you. We also see that if a large group of people in society have the same values, this can become a norm.
