Abstract: This article deals with the process of formation of norms in societies in which individuals act according to their own cognitive framework under communication. The individuals acquire information from others and interpret it. The way of individual’s action is revised through changing the source of information and reforming the method of interpretation. Through the revising mechanisms, assemblages sharing cognitive frameworks establish. At first individuals adopt the same source of information and then arrange the shared cognitive framework. The assemblage are considered as groups with common norms, since the same cognitive framework gives actions coherency. In the process of formation the two revising mechanisms function in turn. The intensity of interaction among individuals affects the period to build norms and the size of groups sharing norms. The size develops under strong interaction but the period comes to long. The dependency of average size of norms on the strength is a power.
