Reference Groups

Real or theoretical groups (social, ethnic, family, etc.) that serve as sources for identification, motivation, aspiration, attitudes, behavior, or modes of living (Note: Do not confuse with "Role Models" or the Identifier "Reference Individuals," both referring to individuals rather than groups, the former emulated in one or a few roles and the latter emulated in many roles).
