https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_group

Social psychologist Muzafer Sherif proposed to define a social unit as a number of individuals interacting with each other with respect to:

  1. Common motives and goals
  2. An accepted division of labor, i.e. roles
  3. Established status (social rank, dominance) relationships
  4. Accepted norms and values with reference to matters relevant to the group
  5. Development of accepted sanctions (praise and punishment) if and when norms were respected or violated[7]

This definition is long and complex, but it is also precise. It succeeds at providing the researcher with the tools required to answer three important questions:

  1. "How is a group formed?"
  2. "How does a group function?"
  3. "How does one describe those social interactions that occur on the way to forming a group?"
