The paper explores how people think and behave. However, various schools of thought have evolved through the development of social psychology on human behavior. While such scientists attribute a certain behavior to biological factors such as genetics, others consider early childhood experiences to be more likely affecting behavior. Such approaches or perspectives largely need investigations with special reference to the current global world. Concepts such as social influence, attribution, prejudice and discrimination, attitudes etc. play role here. The paper investigates why deviance occurs? How does it affect a society? However, since the early days of society, scholars have developed theories to explore what deviance and crime mean to society. Deviance being an accidental result of disorder and anomie, and a symptom of internal breakdown, it usually leads to crime. Method of research used in the present research is of qualitative type which is very popular in social sciences. Conclusion reaches the result that due to the unbridled and increasing urbanization and the emergence of a controversial society, deviation of socio-psychological norms is inevitable.
