Behavioral aspects are communicated through the herd instinct

Behavioral aspects and knowledge are transmitted through the "herd instinct" only in humans and in some great apes. Children from the age of two, like certain representatives of primates (higher), learn by copying the actions of adults or the majority. Small children and chimpanzees, on ninety-nine occasions, follow the crowd, and only one percent follow individuals who have strayed off course.

This conclusion was made by the Germans when they observed monkeys and people, revealing their common features of behavior. For this, a demonstrative experiment was conducted: a team of four participants had to put a ball in the hole and win a prize. The first three were placed in one hole and received one prize, and the last participant placed in another hole and received three prizes. But neither the children nor the chimpanzees were tempted by the three prizes and did the same as most. The orangutans participating in the experiments did not react at all to the crowd and placed the balls thoughtlessly, in a random order.

From this experiment, adults need to understand that the crowd is of great importance for the first years of their children, so this must be taken into account in the educational moments.

Slightly deviating from the topic, we suggest that you familiarize yourself in advance with the opportunity to spend the new year on a ship, since many are looking for opportunities to start the year in a new way)
