Group guidance systems must sometimes take precedence over individual guidance systems. Indeed, acceptance of this tenet is the basis of the socialization process. We may begin with a concern with the self, but inevitably there is an accounting with the other. The development of Adler's theory of personality demonstrates this principle (Ansbacher & Ansbacher, 1956).

The potential conflict between inner- and outer-directedness was not confronted by Jung. Self-Other Orientation The classic conflict between self and other may be resolved in part by forming a coalition with the other, that is, by perceiving oneself as included within a group of significant other persons. By forming a coalition of the self and the other, the rules of conduct of the group provide a stable guide and lead to regularity of individual behavior in social situations.

Consistency of individual behavior also makes studied change by the group more possible. If every social event presents a social problem (conflict), the efforts of the group to solve the moment to moment problems will leave the group more vulnerable to a major intragroup conflict. 30 Social Interest Without group norms as a theory of social behavior, individual behavior would be fortuitous and vulnerable to the contingencies of daily events. Shared expectations of group members regarding the social behavior of the members of the group (group norms) serve as conflict control mechanisms.
