The paper observes the characteristics of adolescents and how their cognitions and behaviors contribute to their peer group formation and social development. These observations support the group formation concepts of social psychology. The paper bases its findings on five studies that look at the process of socialization in youth and have identified techniques and patterns utilized.
From the Paper:"Social psychology by definition is the study of groups, and group formation is never more obvious or influential than in the stages of adolescence. Adolescents employ a variety of techniques, including self-serving bias and attributions, in the formation of their peer groups and in their socialization. While research directly examining these particular techniques in adolescence is somewhat rare, many researchers have studied general ways in which youth socialize. Five articles related to this topic have been reviewed, each dealing with characteristics of adolescents and how their cognitions and behaviors contribute to their peer group formation and social development."
