I might follow the crowd if we are talking about an issue that is unimportant or trivial. However, I am NOT afraid to step away and voice my opinions or be alone if it's something I feel strongly about or if i think is wrong.
I'm an argumentative person, especially amongst friends, but whilst in public or with a larger group of people i try to pick and choose my battles. Not every issue is worth fighting, while some definitely are.
My mother told me when I was young be yourself dont be a sheep and follow the crowd and I took the advice probably a bit too much to heart. After all I am 36 love Steam Engines and Helicopters. But also teddy bears, cross stitching and collect timbles with a pink bedroom with pictures of steam engines on the wall infact I am totally individual which I think is fantastic.
I be myself when I was younger I used to follow but I'm a teenager now and I no longer do that I like being myself.I don't care If I can't fit in with the crowed,I don't care if people don't like me especially I won't please them either.I have my own opinions .if they don't like it too bad.
I'm always myself, but if the crowd are doing something i want to do, i'll jump on the bandwagon and go with them ^^
It;s much easier to just be like everyone else rather than to put your foot down and ignore people who don't like you for who you are. I say put the mask down and don't give a flying f@ck what the Sheep think ;)
im really big on being your own person, and wen people hav followers of lil wannabe's idk i feel lik a preacher telling them to be themselves, if people don tlike you they can shut thur trap and go away amnd if they do then hip hip horray.
so, im always myself.
I am unafraid of being myself :) I value my own opinion very highly, but I am very open and non-judgemental when it comes to people being theirself :) As long as you aren't a drug addict, or something stupid like that, then you're cool with me :P
I am stubborn, I will instincivly say what I believe in and I'm not afraid of what anyone thinks, I will do what I want. Idgaf if people don't like it, I will speak my mind, do what I like, believe what I want. I don't listen to pop music. I listen to dubstep. I don't use Mozilla Firefox. I use chrome. I go whatever way I want to go, and it usually gets me in trouble, but I don't plan on changing any time soon.
so yea, I be mahself.
Now a picsha 4 ur enjoymentz
HA! Are you truly asking me this? I am absolutely NOT A FOLLOWER!!!!!!!!!!!!! I make fun of them at school! If you saw me following the crowd, it would either be because I was literally caught in the middle of a giant, closely packed crowd who's pushed me, I am being carried by a screaming sea of fans at my rock star tour, or there is a knife to my back. If not, I would be a hypocrite, and I just might kill myself! :p
It depends. Sometimes I may want to follow the crowd, but I'm never afraid to be myself and voice my thoughts and judgments. I can be very argumentative and I stick to my opinions, so yeah, I'd say that I'm more myself than a follow-the-crowd type of person.
Great question! I tend to go with both. I love to be myself, and dare to dream and think big- but say you're a position such as Church Camp and everyone else is going up to the alter to pray- do you stay and your seat like a bump on a log? Or do you go up there and pray, making all problems go away forever? So I'm sort of tied with the two. But- I usally stay with Be myself and being brave. ;)
I'm myself :) At my school, all the girls are exactly alike (they're all kinda fake). They're some natural girls (and I at least consider myself one of them), and I consider myself to be my own person too :) I'd hate to follow the crowd :/
I used to follow the crowd because otherwise I felt awkward,
but since I got into my new class and grew a lot (in character, not in height... unfortunately XD) I'm myself now and I love it! After all, being everyone else would just be being a copycat.
But whenever I'm in school and we've got an "empty hour" (so no class, we can just go and do something ourselves) and I want to stay in school do some homework but everyone else wants to go to the mall(which is like a 2 minute walk from our school) I'll go with them because I hate being all alone in school XD. Except when I've got a test to learn, then I'd stay.
Im myself 99% of the time the other 1% is when I go slap happy and refer to myself in third person while repeating "I'm a nice bitch " until T asks if I'm okay and I laugh and cry at the same time.
from that I hope you can tell I'm me no matter what
I am always myself when I am with people. I tend to get real tired of people who change who they are when they are in a group and tend to ignore the person that they are with. I feel like I am alone in a group of people, but I would rather be myself and express my opinion no matter how they feel about it rather than sell out.
I guess I am really lucky here because ever since I was young my mom taught that not every person was gonna like me if I didn't do or own what the cool people did and that I eshouldn't care what others think. So I tend to just go off and do what makes me happy because in the end I don't need to fit in if it means losing my self respect and value.
