identified three types of conformity
, back in 1958
: conforming to other's view
s or behaviour
, but in private maintain
ing your own.Identification:
ing the views, beliefs, or behaviour of a group
, but only when the group is there
, with you. The new attitude usually dissolves
when you leave the group.Internalization:
a true conversion to a different
set of beliefs, views, or behaviour. The new attitude
is truly value
d, even when the group is not present. The values stay with you
even when you leave the group.
Claiming to have certain views to avoid an arguement does not really apply to conformity, as long as it is personally acknowledged.
