session one questions:

1. what do you think of these experiments? do you believe it's the case, or staged? why?

2. if it's real, it's ridiculous, isn't it? why do you think people still do it? if it's staged, is there any social conformity out there in your opinion? guess the answer is yes so, what are they? how about those queue-up phenomena?

3. if you were the innocents in these videos, would you fall for the conformity? with questions or without asking any question? give us your reasons.


session two questions:

4. what are possible causes of conformity(social) in our society in your opinion? is there any "positive" social conformity?

5. "some knew they gave wrong answers. some actually thought the incorrect answers were correct."
conformity can be conscious and unconscious of. which one is more dangerous? it could be dangerous, couldn't it? or you don't think so? why?

6. now you know sometimes, if not always, conformity is ridiculous or negative, thinking about sheep effect or herd behavior, do you dare to be different from others? will you still fall for them later? any idea to prevent it from happening?


do so-called social norms and universal values result from social conformity? ok, i will just leave the question for you to think about lo~ :mrgreen:

Hey Luis

Excellent two topics, specially the 1st one. At the 1st link, that girl seems to be hypnotized and conformed with the crowds' behavior. Having said that looks so funny, but maybe I would have done exactly the same thing since being easily affected by majority is part of human nature or animal instinct. Then again, play safe to avoid risk. What happen when choose not to? A lot of scenarios can be applied to this. That is worth well discussing.

actually i didn't notice she seemed to be hypnotized or she conformed with the crowds' behavior, just can't help, since it's said men are more visual.. XD

ok, seriously, guess that's because she is just 16. maybe giving a speech in TEDx was a bit nerve-racking for her lo~ :mrgreen:

Thanks to you guys, I just finished this video. That is a wonderful 16-year-old girl with great talents. What she said in her talk is inspiring, too.

Hey Luis

You were confused what I said. I was talking about the 1st link clip in which the oriental girl could not help stand up along with the crowds and ring sound. :lol:
