The Secrets of Conformity
From the paper:
With his writing of Core-pone Opinions, Mark Twain shows the susceptibility we all have to conformity, and the great influence the opinions of others have on our way of thinking. As Twain said, ?It is our nature to conform; it is a force which not many can successfully resist?. Everyone likes to think they are unique and independent, but the reality for most of us is that we simply follow the trends in the world around us and incorporate others? opinions into becoming our own.
