The Echoes of the Mind (123-2) Reality via Sociality continued


Group selection is a significant evolutionary force. ~ American evolutionary biologist David Sloan Wilson et al

The need for a high degree of sociality is not confined to humans: it is part of evolutionary heritage throughout many clades. Whether bird, baboon, or human, quality of life is largely defined by one’s social relations.

Social intelligence is in every adaptation that allows successful interaction in social groups. ~ American psychologists Karen Schmidt & Jeffrey Cohn


Preference for social interaction among adults varies widely. Those who socialize well are often not the most innovative. A mind’s preoccupations seldom find a strong affinity for both symbolic manipulation and social relations.
