We have those who follow the "in" ideology: people believe smiling is right, I will also smile.
We have those who have formed a smaller group slightly in opposition to the masses: people believe smiling is right, but I smile when I want.
Then we have that one person (or two) who always thinks outside the box: simply because people think smiling is good doesn't mean I must smile. In fact I hate smiling and I won't smile.
This person always finds it difficult to fit into a group of which ideas he shares fully. He rather agrees with the idea one groups shares, or the idea another groups shares. You will never find him following the masses and his ideas are so concentrated in just one person (himself) that we sometimes judge him as being radical.
Do you know anybody like this and do you think his/her controversy should be seen as a value or rather as a stubborn attitude?
