Social competence and social incompetence

Rose-Krasnor in 1997 defines social competence as “effectiveness in interaction, considered from both self and other perspectives. Social competence is viewed as an organizing construct, with transactional context-dependent, performance oriented, and goal-specific characteristics”.

According to Burton in 1996, social competence concerns such areas as understanding an following social rules, adjusting social behavior to the situation, social problem solving and understanding other.

Social noncompetence has been selected as the descriptor for populations lacking social skills sufficient to allow them to enter into the social world well and to generate essential small groups. Social incompetence is to be found in wide cross-section of people, not just those with learning disabilities. For examples, people with chronic mental health problems as well as con-conformist.

Alternatively, problems of communication, hearing and vision could be the cause of social incompetence too. Virtually, every social interaction in which individuals with less advance in mental, physical and social development participate is to some degree influence by the fundamental reality of the stigma attached to intellectual and social incompetence.

Ultimately the social incompetence of mentally disable person lies in their inability to extend and strengthen their families through social activities, and relationships. Those who are unmarried are unlikely to find a spouse, so they cannot contribute to family growth through relations of affinity procreation.
