Since the beginning of times, human beings have been grouped into social entities, which has allowed them to defend themselves, reproduce, learn, and interact with the environment. Society and culture are fundamental aspects of human identity. Social interaction goes beyond mere genetic transmission, it is enriched in communication and cooperation between its members, which allows them to transmit knowledge and behaviors through learning. This is how culture is formed.
Culturally, social interaction occurs under:
- A close physical contact,
- Dates to go to the movies, eat or exercise;
- Birthdays and Holidays are highly celebrated surrounded by a ton of people
- Big parties to celebrate weddings, Christmas or holidays traditions passed from generation to generation.
All of them have in common the accumulation of people in closed or open spaces, with close proximity interactions.
