n a experiment done years ago, it shows how desperate we are to belong in a group. It was done by Stanley Schachter, where they had 3 lines, a long, medium, and short line. And everybody
was in on it except for one person.
Yes, the one poor stooge in the experiment.
He would eventually agree that the middle line was the longest.
Even though he know clearly it was not the longest line. Peer Pressure.
Because he wanted to fit in, and we do the same thing in our relationships.
Yeah, we have a compulsive need to belong and we long for that so much that sometimes we give up authenticity for that.
So friend, don’t forget to be true to you and enjoy the relationship you long for.
