"Membership and Symbolic Groups: Groups can also be classified on the basis of membership as membership groups and symbolic groups. When a person belongs to a group by virtue of membership or even if he merely qualifies for a membership to that group, it is called a membership group. On the other hand, when a person does not form a part of a group and/or does not qualify to be a member of the group, but nonetheless adopts the values, norms and patterns of behavior similar to members of the group, he is said to be a member of a symbolic group. In consumer behavior, the focus lies on membership groups. Source:"
