With an increase in the phenomenon known as globalization and the wide use of technology as a complementary feature, human society has changed and the needs have increased manifold. Changes in the political, economical and cultural arena have challenged and effected alterations within various professions. The autonomy of professions has been under challenge because the market has tried to decrease it so to reduce their power and status. Also, trust has been replaced by target setting accountability as client-professional interactions have been limited in order for services and companies’ profits to be increased. In this regard, the identity of a person has come to be influenced by various factors that involve the technical aspects within which people and organizations operate. This essay will describe a setting within which the identity issues of an individual will be perceived and put forth.In the human relation setting, it is imperative for the assessor to be at his or her most attentive best. Since this may not always be possible, there is a room for faulty perception especially in an arena like the cyber space where there is little real time interaction. Also, in case a personal bias of some sort creeps in towards a problem area encountered by the entity, there is scope for misguided judgments regarding identity perception to take place. This also makes the participant more vulnerable to faulty advice and counseling as he or she comes in with an open mind to accept the norms of operating in the virtual setting as far as academics, shopping, entertainment, work and friendships are concerned. The keyword in this essay for the human relations setting within which the scenarios will be described, is “networking”.Further, in settings like workplaces and places of education, students and employees alike are exposed to the assessors and participants in terms of their weaknesses and vulnerabilities which may sometimes hamper their chances of growth in their field.In this regard, it is important to balance strengths and weaknesses instead of studying either of them for the sake of a balanced judgment. Studying both sides of the coin will also help the assessor decide which model he or she might want to apply to the behavior of the individual in order to correct the deviations. Examples of these models may be a deficit model to work around
