Exercise: Conformity Response
The two students are both successful in both situations from appendix E. I think after reading conformities, and how people conform to society believes and behaviors. I have chosen one of the young men as a person whom will likely conform before the other student. I think john can change his outlook or alter his behavior before Donnie. John likes being around people and he made himself popular through his high school years. I believe that people involved in “cool crowd” are doing the norm for their group. The person has the approval of others.
The person in the crowd is use to having others approval and favor. The last sentence in the Scenario moved me to believe that John has problems getting use to new surrounds. (According to Psychology and the challenges of life: Adjustment in the new millennium, 2005) “A person can be more incline to conform if he or she Lacks familiarity with certain tasks.” I believe john may find himself observing his surrounding and seeing how he may fit into his new surrounds. I do not see John being a person that can just do he own thing without being impacted by his new surrounds. I do not see him not trying to seek a new group to become popular with during his college years.
I believe that Donnie has a different approach to going to school. Donnie is not concern about making many friends by choice, and he is use to focusing on things that he likes and things care about like his music or school work. Enclosing of this paper, I will say that john is like the example this week’s reading in chapter 5. John is a person who likes to belong to a group of people considering his back ground in high school as being popular. (Psychology and the challenges of life: Adjustment in the new millennium, 2005)
