A Sense of Belonging

Neuropsychological studies have shown that we are strongly wired to sense and value belonging.

There are 3 primary ways that members of a group send and receive belonging cues to each other.

  • Energy: Individuals are engaged with the group. They invest in the exchange that is occurring
  • Individualization: Each person is valued and his or her opinion is listened to.
  • Future orientation: There is a sense that the relationship has a future.
