Think carefully about the issue presented in the following excerpt and the assignment below.
In some circumstances we are encouraged to conform—to follow others, to do and think what everyone else is doing and thinking. In other circumstances, however, we are told to be individuals and are reminded that most people we consider great are not afraid to be different.

Should originality always be more highly praised than conformity?
