What do you think about the term " fitting" in at school, work or an outing somewhere?
I would just want a philosophical approach. Not too much on experiences. Is it better to be an individualist or does fitting in just plainly not exist?

    Apr 26 2012: Personally I feel the need to adapt to each environment, I have a strong leadership personality so in certain circumstances I fit in by leading the class discussion, or distributing roles at work. When I am performing my job (STNA) I fit in by being extremely patient and identifying the needs of each individual resident.
