Wired to Connect: What About the Importance of Social Connection?

Human beings are inherently social creatures. As far back as we can trace, humans have traveled, hunted, and thrived in social groups and for good reason. Humans who were separated from their tribe often suffered severe consequences. Social groups provide us with an important part of our identity, and more than that, they teach us a set of skills that help us to live our lives. Feeling socially connected, especially in an increasingly isolated world, is more important than ever. The benefits of social connectedness shouldn’t be overlooked.

Connection is why we’re here. We are hardwired to connect with others, it’s what gives purpose and meaning to our lives, and without it there is suffering.

~Brene Brown

  1. The human being has a fundamental need for social connections and belonging. The need for social connections is an adaptive trait and that is why, from my point of view, it has become the primary psychological need for individuals of our species: only within a group could our ancestors try to find access to the satisfaction of other basic needs.
    The success of digital technology is largely explained by this fundamental need for social connections that we inherited from our ancestors. Digital technologies are primarily aimed at “connecting” with others, whether they are known or unknown, near or far in physical space and time. They therefore respond to the constant “hunger” our mind has for social connections. They also do so without many of the cognitive costs that are typically associated with face-to-face relationships. A conversation with a colleague or partner requires the exercise of a certain degree of self-control which has a cost. They don’t involve the same cost of self-regulation (no one sees our face, our posture and how we are dressed) but they can respond to our mind’s constant need for connections.
