Correlates of Affectual, Associational and Functional Solidarity Among Digitally Literate Adults


People in the society and workplace needs to conduct well by appreciating one another and not criticizing as there must be solidarity. This will ensure social cohesiveness and harmony. However, this remains an issue as there are personal and environmental constraints such as needs that are unattained, opportunities that are not captured and cultural structures that are not contextualized mindfully. The integration of Mindfulness, intergenerational solidarity and relational-cultural theories would prove helpful in achieving intergenerational solidarity as needs are met, culture is contextualized well and opportunities are captured well. A study of 279 digitally literate adults employing quantitative method (means, standard deviation and Pearson r) from three sets of questionnaires measured the hypothesized correlates (needs attained, opportunities captured, cultural contextual structures,) to affectual, associational and functional solidarity were employed. Findings equally prove high mean values for all facets of solidarity as affectual (3.99), associational (3.60) and functional (3.61), explaining 23 %, 14% and 13% of the variance. There were significant correlations among needs attained (0.56), opportunities captured (0.50), cultural contextual structures (0.51) to all facets of solidarity 0.001 probability accepting the hypotheses. Findings infer that personal and environmental factors correlate significantly with solidarity. Implications for learning support and future directions are forwarded.
