    Herd Mentality

    Ever since humans are little kids, everyone always tries to fit into a group. While growing up, people search for the constant validation of fitting in and not sticking out. This desire to conform to society may cause a...

    • Dear Deysi,
      I am impressed by your post “Herd Mentality” because it is impressive how people would change their behavior when they tried to fit in a group. People do it because they want to be influenced by their peers.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out to be is: “A test was conducted in the 1950’s to test herd mentality, the results showed that “people conform or change their behavior to match social norms” this emphasizes that people will change their actions or personalities in order to fit into a group (“What is Mob Mentality?”).” I think it is shocking to see this because people will want to act how their other peers are so they can fit in the group.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like the information you put about how and why people change their behaviors. I would like you to continue telling on what else makes people want to change.


    • Dear Deysi,

      I am stunned at your post about Herd Mentality because it helps me to understand that peer pressure can play an important role in an individuals decisions. Also, trying to fit in is also a problem.

      One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me is that “A test was conducted in the 1950’s to test herd mentality, the results showed that “people conform or change their behavior to match social norms” this is a big problem because it people have the tendency to want to be like others. I think that this topic should be explained about more due to the affects that it can have on people.

      Thanks for your post. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I am interested in the topic. I would like to see some changes occurring if possible.

    • I really like your topic. I feel like herd mentality is especially prevalent in schools, but not only do individuals feel the need to fit into a group but other people in society expect others to put themselves into a group and conform. What are some solutions you feel would help limit herd mentality?

    • Dear Daniela, I am delighted by your post about herd mentality since you emphasize what has led society to be like this. You also focused on a project that underlooked your topic and you focused on the reflecting points, good job.

      One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was “The problem begins when no one wants to stand out in a group, they all follow the leader” since you acknowledge that as a society, we are all following one person, and that is those who make decisions of their own; we are all followers of those type of people and then, make it the norm. Rather than going through with our initial thought, we decided that what everyone else is doing is better, but that’s what everyone thought before going through with it.

      Thank you for your writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next since it seems that you always look further into research than what is given to you first hand.


  • Daniela commented on the post, Fate is Real?

    I think you did a great job on your blog! I think many people may not realize that there is a distinct difference between the definitions of fate and destiny. I really liked your connection of fate to how people can relate it back to Religion.I think that it is a very conversation sparking topic. I feel like you could have explained the…Read More

    • I loved reading your blog! I thought it was an interesting topic and very informative. One thing I noticed was a bit of repetition within the sentences. There were a couple sentences that appeared to be rephrased but contained the same information stated in a previous sentence. For example, the second sentence reads “from a very young age parents can influence their child’s personality and growth” and a sentence not too far down states “from a young age parents shape their children to be who they are.” There is also repetition when you say “whether parents believe it or not, they are the #1 influence in their children’s lives, and “as said in the article written by David Gresh “parents are the #1 influence in their children’s lives’. ” A suggestion would be to take the evidence and combine the sentences with similar thoughts to condense the information and make the sentences flow better. Aside from repetitiveness, there were a few grammar errors. For instance there were a couple places that needed commas and in one sentence the contraction “don’t” was missing the apostrophe, but overall I really enjoyed reading over your work 🙂 Good job!
