Group think vs individual thought or choice - ever have a personal conflict?
We are all subject to group think and often contribute to it because it is comforting, acceptable, or even espoused. Most of us want, or try to get along with one another, but it's not alway possible. Eventually peer pressure, expectations, traditions, governmental requirements, etc., can create conditions that can be intolerable for some of us. To opt out, or oppose how it is, can have a serious downside, or in some cases a serious upside.
Anyone care to cite a personal experience, or describe someone you admire for their independent stand?
Personal experiences are preferred. It's nice to know how and why, or regrets, if you care to disclose that information.
