  1. I’m waiting for your answer. What do you think of this article?
    Yes, I know you posted something similar in 2011, but it was not like this.

  2. @gottlieb – “I’m waiting for your answer. What do you think of this article?”

    oh, sorry! didn’t realize you were waiting for a response from me. thought you were just pointing out an article. (^_^)

    uh, yeah! interesting! i’d have to look more at the tests that they conducted and which groups they looked at. glancing quickly at the article, (i think) i see that the test was the line length test (which is funny, ’cause a LOT of people let themselves be influenced by others in determing if two lines are the same length or if one’s longer than the other — people are so stooopid (~_^) ).

    the correlation that they found between presence of pathogens and conformity wasn’t that high — 0.40-something. so i’m not completely sold, but it’s interesting.

    i’m very interested in why some groups exhibit more conformity than others, though, so thanks for the link! (^_^)

  3. Yes, I found interesting the idea of​​ ”pathogen prevalence”, suggesting, albeit superficially, we are all behaviorally influenced by pathogens?
    What would be genes but domesticated pathogens? Ah, thanks for replying!

    I’m increasingly tempted to say having cats as pets but that probably doesn’t fit.
