The Fashionable Non-Conformist: Being Different for the Sake of Being Different

It's important to deviate from society sometimes, but we have to be careful not to become a fashionable non-conformist.
Sharrock's insight:

This is the key to being authentic. You should speak and behave because you genuinely have those beliefs, values, and preferences.
