Types of people on sports day

I don’t know about you, but this Sports Day has been the best yet for me. Shout out to Emma and the House Captains for that. And to Ms Lewis and the whole PE Department, as well as the brilliant catering team. In honour of this splendid day, I thought it only right to reflect on the types of students we all see every year.

The psychology behind conformity

Conformity is defined as an individual changing attitudes to align with a social group or network. Conformity towards groups can be observed frequently in everyday life, from the way our behaviour adjusts appropriately to different social groups, to our beliefs and judgments. But why do we conform? Are we always aware that we are conforming? And to what extent are we influenced by the people around us that it changes the way we view ourselves?
