It was not intrinsically about social conformity , but on whats is known as "Solomon Asch syndrome," a condition derived from Asch Experiment. This pathology could be summed up as the fear of difference. Solomon Asch was a world-renowned and prestigious Polish-American psychologist known for his pioneering work in social psychology.
Today I deal with the main reason of Asch experiment , This is social conformity. In a simple definition, This is social conformity happens when individuals in a social group change their behavior, opinions and attitudes to fit the views of the group. Many times, and unconsciously, we "relax" our criterion not to swim against the tide and avoid possible conflicts.
And this is not something that happens occasionally, it's just installed in our routine. Pyramid nuance:. So, It is more appropriate to use the congruence concept rather than movement, when we refer to a group ".
Asch conducted a set of experiments related to visual identification tasks. The task was actually simple: the subjects had to indicate which of the three lines of the card had the same size as the model contained in another cardboard. This task was done in groups up to 9 people, and all, except for one experimental subject and both "naive subject" , were accomplices of the experimenter.
Accomplices were instructed to answer correctly in the first two trials and answer incorrectly and unanimous remaining in the twelve critical essays , which they were interspersed by four other trials in which accomplices answered correctly.
Subjects were publicly express their judgments in the order in which they were sitting. The position of the test subject, placed in the penultimate, allowed the views of most members of the group before giving your answer. The results were surprising, even for Asch himself. Although the task was simple social conformity occurred, so that the experimental subjects gave wrong answers in a third 36,8 by of critical essays, which it did not happen hardly ever if they performed the task alone control group and, so, without knowing the views of others.
Most of the subjects indicated that they had been carried away because they believed that the majority was right, and they were wrong because they did not understand the instructions well or because their visual acuity was not good. Only a subject which followed the judgment of the majority believed that the answers were correct. Here is another video about social conformity in a tv show format showing identical results:.
A small number were aware that the answers were incorrect, but they answered following most not be displayed alone or different. As my professor, the social psychologist Dr. Ricard Faura says , "In social conformity is not only shame that people express, it is a profound doubt of their own criteria before the collective consensus". We settle for not publicly display the difference. This is the fact. From the perspective of personal brand, not to show the difference makes us automatons dumbs.
But just being different isn't everything I appeal to the relevant difference. When we work the value proposition we always wonder why they should choose us? And the answers are 1 It is because we can solve a problem or meet a need. And 2 because we do it in a different way. The two answers complement each other, both are needed.

Individuals prefer the products of their own group, and favor members of their own group when distributing rewards and costs. The interpretation offered by Tajfel and his collaborators is that a purely cognitive and perceptual manipulation has motivational effects in producing in-group bias. The theory assumes that our self esteem depends to great extent on the status and success of the groups we belong to; if we belong to a group, however arbitrary, it must be above-average. Ethnocentrism and hostility.
