ricex508: April 2012 Archives

zebras.jpgDuring this semester we have covered a lot of interesting topics. One that stood out to me a lot was the study of conformity. The video of the students saying the wrong answer to the line height question, really made me realize how much conformity affects people. Even though the students were positive that the answer the rest of the students were saying was wrong, they felt as if they needed to conform and not stand out to the rest of the group and chose the same wrong answer. I feel that many people at this age give into the pressure of conformity for many different reasons, especially in college. Many students want to make new friends and have people like them, and many people will do anything just to get people to like them, even if it means going against their morals and beliefs. I will definitely take this topic into consideration for the rest of my college career as well as my life. Although sometimes it is appropriate to conform, like behaving respectfully in class, other times you should make your best judgement to how to act in a certain situation. Sometimes the majority isn't always correct, and its up to you to go with your own instincts and beliefs rather than rely on others of what to do and how to act.
