Definition Of The Situation


Definition: The definition of the situation is what people use to know what is expected of them and what is expected of others in a situation. Through the definition of the situation, people obtain a sense of the statuses and roles of those involved in the situation so that they know how to behave.
One must know whether they are in a movie theater, bank, library, or market to know, in a social sense, just whom they are interacting with and for what purpose.
