No doubt there were times that I was with the majority of people. The desire to be accepted by "the tribe" is an imbedded genetic trait in most people.
In my mature years, as an observing loner, I am frequently a skeptic. Add to that my curiosity and a desire to learn doesn't make me a good follower of majority opinion.
No doubt I have biases and look for that which will confirm my beliefs. Of course those beliefs are rarely those of the majority.
Heeding Twain's wisdom, I will continue to avoid aligning with the majority.
Love it! It's better to be able to form your own opinions and what you believe than actually believe and follow what someone else does.ReplyDelete
