[PODCAST] #342: Conformity vs. The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem (with Jake Desyllas)


Jake Desyllas recently invited me on The Voluntary Life Podcast to discuss conformity. Topics covered include:
-How conformity to "normal" spending habits prevents people achieving financial independence
-Solomon Asch's conformity experiments and what we can learn from them
-How conformity can alter your perception
-The importance of allies in resisting conformity
-The role of privacy in reducing conformity
-The danger of conforming to a subculture (and still being a conformist)
-How exposure to different views can increase your independence of thought
