WHAT DOES DEMEANOR MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Social behavior

In physiology and sociology, social behavior is behavior directed towards society, or taking place between members of the same species. Behaviors such as predation—which involves members of different species—are not social. While many social behaviors are communication, communication between members of different species is not social behavior. The umbrella term behavioral sciences is used to refer to sciences that study behaviorality disturbance in general. In sociology, "behavior" itself means an animal-like activity devoid of social meaning or social context, in contrast to "social behavior", which has both. In a sociological hierarchy, social behavior is followed by social actions, which are directed at other people and are designed to induce a response. Further along this ascending scale are social interaction and social relation. Specific social behaviors include aggression, altruism, scapegoating, and shyness. "Monosociality" describes social relations with the same sex of a nonsexual nature. "Bisociality" describes social relations with both the same and opposite sexes, also of a nonsexual nature.
