  1. Our identity is shaped by and fits into our context, so if we are taken out of this context, we can become unstable as we develop our identity to once again fit the circumstances we are in.

  2. The community has the power to shape our perspective and identity to assimilate the society’s perspective; we lose our individuality to the community.

  3. The human nature is isolated with individuality that diverges from one another, we are always eager to create similarities that connects us together in order to gain what we believe as ‘amity’.

  4. Having a community force individuals to have the ambition for power and while individuals are in the search for power, learning about self and identity is inevitable.

  5. Humans have a constant conflict between expressing individuality or sacrificing it to fit into the community, and those isolated cope with the lack of community differently.

  6. It is a never ending dilemma of an individual letting go of their identity in order to conform to a community, or to retain their identity to the fullest extent in favour of isolation, it is usually common, though, to walk the middle way.

  7. Our identity is what represents us to society, and our identity is constructed by our behavior. Our identities are also shaped through past experiences and knowledge. After experiencing something or learning something new, or in a different situation before, we tend to change, which also affects our identity.
