Thought this topic was interesting ,should adults care or should it just be teenager thing.


is conformity a sign of cowardice.

or should an adult just do what they are told and follow what everybody tells them to do and the "non-conformist" are the coward ones and have alot of insecurities.
I actually just read an article on this (why we conform, not the opinion of whether it's good or bad) yesterday.

Here's a little snippet:
"In ancient history and prehistory, tribes gave visceral comfort and pride from familiar fellowship, and a way to defend the group enthusiastically against rival groups. It gave people a name in addition to their own and social meaning in a chaotic world. It made the environment less disorienting and dangerous. Human nature has not changed."

That is so true ,honestly the whole non-conformist stuff was funny because really a non-conformist is a conformist.We all try to find a lifestyle that is suitable to our needs and then we try to find people who live that exact same lifestyle.

Some Lifestyles ,you might have to compromise a bit to work(by getting a job) in the mainstream.
