This Is SOO True {and so funny}

I, for so long, have been trying to figure out why sometimes I feel really empowered talking about and sharing with people my very STRANGE eating habits and my theories behind it. And why, at other times, I feel like I need to be "quiet" and keep my views and standpoint to myself {even though I'm well-read and my knowledge about it is very keen}. 

I guess it all depends on my environment and who I am around. Same goes for political views and also religion as well. 

Why do I let others tell me over and over about their religious views or their political views but then don't feel right sharing mine or actually speaking against what they say? 

Social norms and mores I guess? Or maybe just courtesy? I guess we all just want to fit in and don't want to be the "Weirdo" all the time. 

I think it has something to do with what Jeff Sexton calls, Social Proof? What is that? (Jeff Sexton writes about this on

"One method we use to determine correct behavior is to find out what other people think is correct. We view a behavior as more correct in a given situation to the degree that we see others performing it." 

This explains why sometimes I feel like the odd man out {i.e. the man dancing around in the video} and other times I feel like the jump-starter or the igniter of good/fun things! {the rest of the people join the man because they like it and suddenly the man isn't so weird?}

OK, I know, this is a really weird blog post. But this video is just WAY too funny and really explain it all in a nutshell! Am I wrong?

MORAL: Something SO WEIRD can be SO AWESOME with something as simple as the help of OTHERS joining in.
