The second part (part 1 is here: https://www.renderosity.com/mod/gallery/a-meeting-of-minds-part-1-/2744079/?p) of discussing how to represent social pressures for conformity and ways to avoid them. Part of my current series (on the side of my standard Smiley Face cartoons of course).

As a youngster, I was attracted to the hippy ideal but, by the time I was old enough to 'do my own thing', the movement was nearly dead.
So I just went ahead and adopted the lifestyle anyway because I like it. Nothing has changed my viewpoint radically since then - nearly fifty years now.
Whilst I respect opposing views and, often, listen to other opinions, these only ever have the effect of modifiers to my values. I have not yet met a will that could totally change my direction.
How would this position me within the social structure discussed here?
I will just add that, during my life, I have met many who have attempted to change me in some way but, so far, without success.
I am enjoying this analysis of social pressure though. Good work.
