After learning the topics of social psychology, I have a clearer understanding about our behaviors in daily lives. I think this is more like an anatomy lesson but for the behaviors. What I have learned doesn't change my understanding of myself or to the world. They just help me to look through the reason of why am I doing that.
Conformity is one of the most memorable ones for me. For example, if it is the time for psychology discussion and the classroom is empty. I might wait for a while. As time flies, I might leave if I am still the only one in the classroom. However, if there is someone else waiting in the room, I might wait for a little bit longer. Before learning social psychology, I will just do them without having any thoughts. But now, I know that it is because of conformity. People are tend to conform themselves under group pressure. That is how this concept of psychology shaped my mind.
I think I will remember conformity in five year or even more because we are not living alone. Everyone has the unbreakable bonds with the outside world. Therefore, every move we make will have something to do with the social environment. On the one side, conformity will always reminds me of being one of the social groups. But on the other side, it reminds me that I cannot be like someone else or I will just be normal. If I want to be unusual, I need to have my own personalities. I have to avoid conforming for something even I have to stay under the group pressure.
