Conformity in Schools

In school we learn to be good little Americans--or Frenchmen--or
Russians.
Nikita Fetter's insight:

In this article this person sees schools as a bad thing, and that we conform but to the teachers and school boards standards.  The author of this artice says we are addicted to rules.  In school we want to be told what to do, whether it be a project, homework assignment, or anything else school related.  A lot of the time we think inside the box, very limited and narrow. We also want to preserve the status quo, school is modeling us into what they want in society.  A child is considered to be a rebellion if they do now follow the ideas of te school.  Even we are being taugh the same we still need to change with the times.  As the technology and other things change we have to be able to adapt and change with it.

Conformity and Peer Pressure - Psychology

Conformity and Peer Pressure - Psychology | Conformity | Scoop.it
One type of compliance is conformity
Nikita Fetter's insight:

Conformity is a type of compliance.  Conformity can be best described in relation to peer pressure.  It is not uncomon to feel uncomfortable in a situation where your opinons and beliefs are not the same as the others in the group.  Some of us have been placed in situations where we don't want to do something but we're scared that if we don't conform friends might think of us as a coward. Sometimes we're scared to state our opinons because we think that others won't see our point of view.  Growing up we have to learn to distinguish between what we believe, what others want us to believe and how willing we are to understand another point of view.

Nikita Fetter's insight:

Many teens these days seem to be fine with being like the rest. Teens wear the same clothes, shoes, hats, accessories but claim that it's the new style.  But a lot of the new style is from te 70's or so.  Everyone wants to be popular.  You have o fit in otherwise people won't accet you as much.  Sometimes teens feel like they are no cool enough because they don't have the new and stylish things.  It makes them feel out of place.  Having to fit in affects teen not only in how they feel about them self but it also gives tema lack of individuality with no way to express themselves.

Factors That Increase Conformity - Social Influences | Conformity | Scoop.it
Boundless' free textbooks and study tools make education more affordable, accessible, and effective for students and professors.
Nikita Fetter's insight:
Many things can lead a person to conform.  One can be belonging to a culture that encourages respect for social standards.We tend to follow social norms when eating or watching TV, even if we’re aloneIs a group phenomenonFactors can be the group size, unanimity, cohesion, status, prior commitment, and public opinion, the potential for the lowering of an individual's status within the group if he or she does not conform, the consensus among members of the group, the appeal of the group, and the size of the group, whether one has not yet volunteered a response, whether members of the group observed another's behavior, and whether the group culture promotes respect for social standards.

 

People can be influenced by subtle, even unconscious processes, or by direct peer pressureWe conform are because of our need to be right (informational social influence) and our need to be liked (normative social influence).
