Applause is Contagious Like a Disease - D-brief

Applause is Contagious Like a Disease - D-brief | HealingAndTheMind | Scoop.it
Applause spreads linearly, like a disease. The amount of time an individual feels like clapping is a factor, but not nearly as much as peer pressure.

This is interesting, how peer pressure can factor into little things. Would be good to see what makes the brain do these things and what chemical reactions occure.

Morteza Mostashari's comment, September 15, 2013 9:23 PM
I think it's pretty cool how your identity is based on all these characteristics of your culture, ancestors, and what you like or dislike. It is based around you and you alone, not what others think of you. But unfortunately most people these days allow others to define them in terms of what they like or dislike, so people are so fake these days we honestly don't know who the real person is. I mean there are a few that don't let others define their lives, but most just allow others to run their life and they don't even get a say in it. Your identity is a symbolic self-definition of you, so why would you let others change the way you define yourself?
