Thou shalt not follow the crowd in doing wrong,
neither shalt thou testify along with the perjuring crowd.
Amir’s interpretation of Exodus 23:2
Conformity is the act of matching attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors to group norms. Norms are implicit, unsaid rules, shared by a group of individuals, that guide their interactions with others. This tendency to conform occurs in small groups and/or society as a whole, and may result from subtle unconscious influences, or direct and overt social pressure.
