One who conforms to a belief or set of beliefs held by someone else. For example, as many of the definitions on this page have noticed, there are adolescent social groups in Western society that many people feel the need to conform to, such as goths, punks and emos for example. However, some people may be forced to conform to a set of beliefs that they do not necessarily wish to follow; for example, in dictatorships like the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany in the 20th century, people were forced to conform to what the government believed, regardless of what they themselves thought.

The realm of conformism can be stretched, however. For example, one might argue that by being a non-conformist, you are conforming to non-conformism. However, this is bullshit and you should severely injure anyone who truly believes in that. There is no such thing as the non-conformist group in the same manner as there are punks and emos.

Of course, you could be a non-conformist by not conforming to the social norms as defined by adults, not adolescents, but nobody gives a shit about those anyway.
A conformist is what most of the people who have put entries onto urban dictionary are. You're not a non-conformist simply because you laugh at conformists. A non-conformist is a true rebel, fighting against whatever the prevalent social groups are in their society. In modern Western society, this essentially means wearing whatever you want, listening to whatever music you want, reading what you want and so on, not choosing a social group (such as the emos) and shoehorning yourself into that particular style. For example; ask an emo exactly why they like emo music or emo clothes and don't stop until you get a satisfactory answer. No, wait, don't, because you'll die long before you do (unless they really do like their clothes and music for real reasons, which is unlikely).

Someone who likes whatever music they actually like is a non-conformist. If someone likes music from any genre simply because they like that particular piece of music then they are a non-conformist in that particular area of life.

Everyone... Why? because as some say being a conformist is conforming to fit in or acting a certain way so people can like you. It is human nature to want to fit in.. Even if it is with a group of outcasts. Everyone wants to belong to or associated with something or someone.So we all conform to something in life.. Whether with music, at school,with clothing, which religion you choose or lack there of, social circle. Everything..
1: Dude listen to this band it's frickin awesome everyone loves them.
2: You're such a conformist.
1:So are you for not conforming with my opinion.
2: Yeah you are right... Go DIE..

I am also a conformist.. I conform with everything even non-conforming...I've learned to accept it... Have you?

When somebody has to test the reaction of the people they are with by saying something to the effect of, "I'm well up for <insert inane notion to be proposed here>". If the group approves the motion is carried. Examples of people like this are RETARDS.
Idiot: "I'm well up for getting a cold drink"
Rest of group: "Yeah I'm thirsty too lets get a drink"
Onlooker: "Hahaha they could get a drink but they are probably too stupid to count the money they need to exchange for the goods they are purchasing."


Idiot: "I'm well up for getting a cold drink"
Normal UnRetard: "Hey you stupid phuck, if you want to get a drink just get one. Why do you need the groups approval. *PUNCH*"

A perfect expample are those faggots who grow their hair out and dye it black and dress in black. Who conforms more then they do? Preps may wear the same brand of shirts, but at least they dont listen to the same music, dye your hair black, wear trench coats so you look "tough", dress in black, paint your nails the people who do this, and there are thousands of them, tell us we are the conformists, they dress the same, listen to the same music, and suck each other off. Get a life you "depressed" loser fucks. Anyone who is gothic is just a homo, simple as that.
move to a 3rd world country if you think your life sucks so bad you fucking losers.
