Humans being are social animals. As Aristotle said:
â€śMan is by nature a social animal; an individual who is unsocial naturally and not accidentally is either beneath our notice or more than human. Society is something that precedes the individual. Anyone who either cannot lead the common life or is so self-sufficient as not to need to, and therefore does not partake of society, is either a beast or a god.â€ť
Woah, those are certainly some heavy words.
But the old and wise man has a point, everyone wants to hang out and be loved, they want to be able to party with their friends, meet new people and have engaging social interactions, this is only natural and human. Being social is important because it allows humans to learn and grow. They can understand what is important and how to change and adapt to become more successful and thrive.
At the very least, if they are able to keep moving up their interactions, they can form bonds, alliances and relationships that will help them move forward in life and survive.
Social interaction is great for mental health and the exchange of information. It helps individuals to explore new concepts and ideas and possibly understand life from different perspectives. Helping people to expand their brains and the imaginations also helps them towards leading better lives.
But the thing is, there is always a pre-requisite to being able to interact with different sorts of people. Some groups prefer that all of their members have a certain level of education, while others prefer that the people they interact with have certain school that they went to (Ivy League or go home). Some prefer creativity in their social circle, while others group around interests.
For example, take the idea of marijuana or vape. The shared behavior, activity or interest can create a strong bond. There is nothing to stress over, after all; just the idea of taking part in a shared experience together.
It is organic: if you like vaping and the other person likes it too, well then there is a connection, something to relate to and begin a relationship on.
Vape pens have become sort of a social signal. Individuals donâ€™t just turn to vape pens because they may make them feel good, they turn to them so that they can be part of a group of people and hang out.
Such individuals may use vape pens to be relatable and to connect with others in an experience that can be shared in a collective setting and to potentially enhance their social life.
We may make quick assessments of people as we are out and about as this helps us move forward in life and make decisions that matter. When we see someone wearing a certain brand or lack of a certain brand, we may not be able to relate with them, or actually be able to associate with them right away.
We make quick judgements and snap decisions because weâ€™ve evolved in that manner. We donâ€™t want to dither and waste time, and thus the more convenient a new social bond is, the better it is for us.
The vape experience has stepped into serve as another signal. It brings about a community and a group of potentially interesting people to hang out with and talk about life, love and happiness, about their vape pens and their vape cartridges, and the several differentÂ flavors that they like or donâ€™t.
To think that something as simple as vape tanks could help connect individuals is confounding, but it is also very true at the same time. Just through these little items, people can form lifelong relationships that can be quite fruitful for all involved.
The vape experience is just like many other interests; it is as much practical as it is abstract.
