av Future Skills | Publicerades 10/15/2018

There are 4 modes of being: Herd Animal, Stoic, Independent, and Contrarian.

You can look at it visually like this:

Herd Animal------------------------Stoic------Independent------------------Contrarian

Herd Animal = Go with the crowd, fit in, be nice, and stampede in collective panic.

Stoic = Self-centered and serene, focused on one’s own world and work.

Independent = Going with/against crowd, but without any strong emotion attached.

Contrarian = Taking a stand for something and against the crowd for profit/ideology
