    I'm the original conformer!

    But seriously - I love being original. I hate being the same as everyone. I question everything. I like unique. And I hate people who just reshare information because "so-and-so" said it was right. That's how misinformation spreads.

    It's annoying though. I used to be into goth and nerd. But now both are really "cool". So I'm no longer different. DAMMIT!

    Can't answer that as it depends on the topic - on some things I would be considered conservative/conformist and others pretty liberal/original.

    I have nothing against conformity, per say, as long as it is healthy, true, good, and right.

    I think some may classify me as a nonconformist and I think that is a fair assessment. I have also been told that I "dance to the beat of a different drum" and I wouldn't argue that point either. :0)

    I don't think that I'm that "original" but I have been told that I am "unique".

    I do my own thing and am original, but I'm also secure enough that I don't worry about trying hard to lookor be different (or a non-conformer) just for the sake of not appearing to conform.

    I'd like to think I'm a total original, but there are many instances where I'm a conformist.  Obeying traffic laws, for instance...saying "please" and "thank you".  Opening doors for the elderly and infirm.  That sort of thing.  In most everything else, though, I do my own thing...usually without intending to be an "original". That just seems to be the way I'm wired. ;D

    I am definitely a non-conformist. It's not that I don't agree with things, but I look at them from all angles.
