1.0    Background of the Study

Man has been described as a social animal, when individuals spend a large part of their time at work or play in association with others. The hermit prefers to live alone while people live in varying degrees among others and must adjust their individual behaviours to those of other some unlike around, they prefer to work on their own, they associate with only a few chosen companion and they enjoy best, a location in the remoteness of the high lands.

Others are more liking to be with other people. Such people “getting together” seem to be essential for their enjoyment. This range of individual’s attitude towards social relations must keep continuously in the mind of researchers who deal with problems of human organizations. The family and the tribe or state.
