Face to face personal

"Honour and shame are the constant preoccupation of individuals in small scale, exclusive societies where face to face personal, as opposed to anonymous, relations are of paramount importance and where the social personality of the actor is as significant as his office." (As quoted from J. G. Peristiany in Honor: A History, James Bowman, 2006; page 36).
