So, was it for conformity or against conformity?
Sorry Bix. It was a bit of an emotional post and I had to delete it.I can leave excerpts of it here, though. Such as.. Anyone who's known me for a while can tell you I don't like to conform (with anything, if I can help it). I don't necessarily go out of my way to be different, but I do what suits me and I don't like to be a duck amongst a lot of... ducks. I like to be the.. platypus. Conformity, to me, is the devil.I like to separate myself from... everything around me, as it were, and examine my actions, my thoughts, my ways (this is lately; I never used to do it all the time). I can't tell you why I do it, per se. Perhaps to release myself from said conformity. To make sure I'm doing things for *me*, not for everyone else, or everyone else's usual ways....and that's mainly what it was about. :)
Ah. I see.It's interesting. I heard a story on the news yesterday about differences in Western and Eastern culture, how Asians tend to act more as a group while people in the US tend to act more as individuals. I guess there's benefits to both.
There certainly could be. I wonder if one way makes a group more stronger than the other. What other points could you argue?
