1. Sociology helps you understand how people's behavior is shaped by the conditions in which they live.  That can help you find a proper balance between sympathy and blame.  It can also help you maintain a critical attitude about people who claim to be "self-made" geniuses.

2. Sociology helps you recognize and comprehend similarities and differences in patterns of behavior at different times and places.  As such, it can increase the quality of personal and political decision-making.

3. Sociology helps you think more deeply about the so-called nature-nurture question, which in turn allows you to gain insight into what things about humans are changeable, and what things are not.

4. It is well established that sociological patterns (social class especially) are powerful predictors of health outcomes.
