Social exchange theory

Social exchange theory and social identity theory posit compelling notions about human behavior. Social exchange theory focuses on reciprocity and exchange of resources. With the establishment of an exchange process, a social quid pro quo or give-and-take emerges. Social identity theory (Tajfel & Turner, 1979) maintains that individuals, once placed in groups either by their own volition or assigned by an outside entity, attempt to differentiate themselves by social categorization.
