The Power of Conformity

June 2nd, 2011

Why do people conform? Why do we do the status quo? What is wrong with changing things up a little bit and towards the front of the elevator?
This Cand reminiscing.

My freshmen year in college my geography professor, Dr. Chuck Ziehr, covered the topic of conformity in elevators and maybe even our outlook on life.
Some conformity is good…there is actually a reason why we stand can also help us live easier lives. However, conformity just conformity’s sake is not wise or healthy.
Are you acting in a certain way because you think it is the right thing to do, or because someone else has told you it is the right thing to do? I challenge you to be different. I challenge you to question why you do the things that you do.  Live your life not being afraid to ask questions, and you will be amazed at the things you can accomplish! Have you seen ways in which people conform, whether it be healthy or non-healthy?
