Deviant Behavior


The workaholics, computer addicts, & the participants in extreme sports are not affected
by similar socio-cultural conditions. This is because there are different situations or conditions
pertaining an individual being a workaholic, a computer addict or a participant in any extreme
sport. In most cases, workaholics are forced to work compulsory under various circumstances.
Some of these situations or conditions include a search for the basic needs due to poverty and being
forced to work by the persons in authority, for instance, the prisoners being forced to perform the
various duties by the prison police (Goode, 2017). This indicates that workaholics are always being
surrounded by some forceful conditions to work without a rest.
On the other hand, computer addicts and participants in the various extreme sports are not
being forced by any circumstance or conditions to participate. Such individuals always participate
voluntarily in the in those activities. In most cases, they utilize their leisure time to engage in these
activities for their own enjoyment and leisure. However, after some time, such individuals develop
a habit of engaging in the computer or extreme sports games to an extent that they become addicted
to those games. Therefore, such individuals are being forced to participate in these games by their
own addiction which they have developed as a result of frequent participation.
Therefore, there is a clear difference between the socio-cultural conditions that affect
workaholics, computer addicts and participants in extreme sports. The socio-cultural situations
surrounding the computer addicts and participants in extreme sports are similar while the sociocultural conditions surrounding the workaholics are dissimilar (Humphrey et al, 2012). This is
because continuous participation in computer games and extreme sports arises as a result of
addition that occurs due to the enjoyment that is associated with these games. On the other hand,
