Have you ever wondered about the true meaning of etiquette? Do you instantly think of the manners you'll learn in charm school when someone mentions the word? When many people think about etiquette, the first thing that pops into their minds is knowing which fork to use at a formal dinner or how to shake hands with someone.
Manners and rules of good society : or, Solecisms to be avoided
The Vernal Project. Since every person has her own definition of a good society, there cannot be a single, universal standard — there are at least as many definitions as there are people. Only in a dictatorship could one person unilaterally decide what constituted the elements of a good society and impose this definition on others. Certainly, most people would agree that having one person dictate to everyone else is not acceptable in a good society. However, this point does indicate one area of agreement: most people probably concur that a good society must be responsive to the people who live in that society. Hence, the first element of a good society must be rudimentary democratic consent: everyone must at least passively accept how the society is constituted and agree that it basically conforms to their own conception of a good society.
Etiquette, the complex network of rules that govern good behavior and our social and business interactions, is always evolving and changing as society changes. It reflects our cultural norms, generally accepted ethical codes, and the rules of various groups we belong to. It helps us show respect and consideration to others and makes others glad that we are with them. Without proper manners and etiquette, the customs of polite society would soon disappear and we would act more like animals and less like people. Aggressiveness and an "every man for himself" attitude would take the lead. In earlier times, the rules of etiquette were used for two purposes: to remind people of their own status within society and to reinforce certain restrictions on individuals within that society.
America prizes the informality of its business life. The past three decades have been a time of increasing informality in the American workplace. Informal environments are said to be more trusting and open, and workers who are free to express their personalities are more comfortable and thus more creative—right? According to etiquette guru Judith Martin—known far and wide as Miss Manners—informality in the workplace may do more harm than good. Without some formality in social intercourse, Miss Manners argues, human interactions end up being governed by laws, which are too heavy-handed to serve as a guide through the nuances of personal—or professional—behavior. Since our earliest beginnings, we have developed formal rules to accompany shared human experiences, such as eating and mourning. Yet, says Miss Manners, something in us rebels against form and etiquette, and every so often, an antimanners movement takes hold, and people come to believe that following etiquette is unnatural.

Manners and rules of good society
Every culture across the ages has been defined by the concept of etiquette and accepted social interaction. However, it is the British — and the English in particular — who have historically been known to place a great deal of importance in good manners. Whether it be in relation to speech, timeliness, body language or dining, politeness is key. British etiquette dictates courteousness at all times, which means forming an orderly queue in a shop or for public transport, saying excuse me when someone is blocking your way and saying please and thank you for any service you have received is de rigueur. The British reputation for being reserved is not without merit.
