In today's world, everyone is actively participating in conformism. Even if you are very educated conformism will target you with more literacy.
What is conformism?
Conformism or conformity is matching our beliefs, attitude and behaviours to group norms, rules and expectations. For example, humans like to follow large groups or "sheep walk". We don't even notice the regular action of conformity in our lives and we confirm it by our non-conscious actions. It is deep inside our nature and we use this to protect ourselves. This is how things went viral on social media.
Creating influence is the main solution. Some of the solutions are –
1. Be aware
Be aware of conformity and try to avoid it by sticking to you believe.
2. Think before any statement
Think before any action or statement, take your time to understand it and don't act immediately. Always think what is your real opinion about this case.
Self-esteem as your views can change the opinion of your whole group.
Courage - main step is to have the courage to be yourself publicly.
5. Change Group
If a group doesn't accept as the way you are that might be a wrong group.
6. Great non-conformist
Remember the contribution of great non-conformist people, who dares to take bold or different steps.
