The question was “what drives people to conform?” It’s something I often think about as I watch people trying to find intimacy and relationships. It’s incredibly obvious among teens. They have such a need to blend in. It’s what drives them to make so many choices that they probably don’t even want to make. I have an extra copy of this book and would like to give it to you. Do you ever wonder what it is that makes people so afraid to stand out?”
