Why Is The Opinion Of Others Important To Us?

laitman_423.03Question: The basis of conformism, first of all, is that the opinion of others is very important to us even if we do not notice it or do not recognize it.

Why do we care so much about the opinions of other people whom we neglect, and in fact do not care about at all? How can you explain this paradox?

Answer: This is indeed a paradox. On the one hand, I am deeply indifferent to others. On the other hand, it is very important to me that they approve of me. If even a small mouse, cat, or dog shows some gesture of disdain for me, I will get upset. This will hurt me very much.

It is arranged so by nature so that we would get into correct contact with the world around us. So that we will have good mutual communication. So that I will correctly influence the world and the world will influence me in global harmony.

Question: In principle, if I didn’t care about society, I would never be able to establish proper communication with it?

Answer: You would not be able to change yourself and feel the globality and integrality of general nature. This is the most important thing.
