The tendency for all human beings to atttempt to belong to a group of people, by any means necessary, in order to feel secure and wanted. Conformity is displayed particularly well by weak-minded individuals who fear loneliness, and when alone feel too afraid to stand up for themselves. Conformity is allowing anything other than your own true desires to influence your decision making. Conformity is what separates the true individuals, who are oppressed and hated, from everybody else.

Conformity is the act of 'blending in with the crowd' or emulating the actions of another individual, group, or belief system. Conformity can be linked to a fear of rejection or the presence of apathy in a person.

For instance, in a school-system, different social sects will conform to a certain style of clothing or behavior in order to fit in with a certain group. Conformity is also a part of conversation. In our daily lives, we will consistently conform to the opinions and ideas of other people. Conforming to the idea of another doesn't necessarily mean agreeing with something they say that you don't believe in, but it can be, and this is where the negative side of conformity comes from.

In conversational conformity, one can sit back and watch while someone they like/befriended is being attacked or even join in. This example of negative conformity is often found in schools and in the workplace. The desire for acceptance drives people to offer negative information about another person in order to fuel their conversational counterpart's drive for drama.

When a dictator, such as a coach, makes you change all aspects of your thinking or ways of doing things to make he/she happy. People who conform are usually suck ups or do not want to get punished, but in the end there will most likely be punishment, such as running until you throw up or screaming at you until you want to cry. Most of the time it is the coach's way or the highway. A lot of times the dictators are hypocrites, who say their rules but don't always back them up. Rule of thumb: don't conform shawty!
The coach makes the players conform when he makes players tuck their uniforms in, take their steel cleats off on the bus or going into ANY public place, hit a certain way, wear sleeves under 70 degrees, and abide by his rules only.
