The Asch Conformity Experiment (1953)

One third of you would answer incorrectly as to which one of the lines on the right match the one on the left...given others before you give the wrong answer.

In 1953, Solomon Asch set out to see just how much people will conform. He would bring in someone like you, handsome, smart, and totally awesome. He would lead you to believe that the other 5 or 6 people in the room were just like you, only less handsome, smart, and awesome. He would lie. They all are actors.


Every single person to have ever lived, knows no more than you do. No one fucking knows about the afterlife. You know has much about the meaning and purpose of life than anyone who has ever lived. Take the path less followed. Be you. But...

Beware of conforming with non-conformist...
