Just caught this on Michael Covel's Trend following: Watch group think in action as individuals deny what they sees with their own eyes. Most likely you would to.
Please question everything, even if it is makes you seize up for a day or two. We are social animals and far less individual than we like to believe. Our greatest cage is the limitation of our perceptions of ourselves.
Our culture and most "modern cultures" are based on a fictive belief of individualism and yet the archetypes that are accepted or acceptable are fairly limited. It is a strength and weakness.
As the ancient Greeks said, Know thyself. In addition: question authority! and don't trust the group. This is just one financial anthropologist's opinion. But there is nothing like a group of people "succeeding" to seriously do harm as their flawed beliefs get re-inforced in the short or medium term with misplaced money or recognition.
Warning: The Milgram experiment is a deeply disturbing side to the human species and watching it is disturbing., Our desire to conform with the group or a weak but present authority figure at the expense of the individual or individuals is truly disturbing.
