Micro Perspective is a perspective, or form of analysis, which focuses on the individual and their subjectivity, rather than focusing on the structures of society thought to be external and constraining on the individual. Sociology focuses on social structures, the processes that guide them, and the dynamics of change. Sociology covers social life from both micro perspective and the macro perspective of entire societies and the micro perspective of an individual or small groups. It is important to get an in-depth understanding of the micro and macro sociology, its methodological strength, underlying assumptions and problems.

Micro perspective is found in symbolic interactionism, ethnomethodology, labeling theory, interpretive theory. Any sociologist needs to know a micro perspective from a macro perspective approach. Think of micro perspective as understanding the social process from the level of interpersonal interactions.

Microperspective forms an important perspective in many fields of study, including modern psychosocial studies, conversational analysis and human-computer interaction. Bakhtin's answerability is about the attempt to understand how we should voice our thoughts and feelings when the Other can answer with the same basic skills of communication. Micro perspective is about a person and others.

A good example of the micro-perspective: most of our school offices close at 5 p.m. Most of our student body is at work from 9 to 5. Most of our students eventually manage to get serviced by our school offices. If we look at the percentage of students processed by our offices, we'd find that 100 % are eventually processed. Macro level. But if we took a micro perspective and tried to determine whether students had to take time off from work to be processed, we might not consider the service so good.
