Conformism is a posture or attitude towards life, which plunges the individual into a pit of blind acceptance, regardless of whether the circumstances are negative or positive, and which eliminates any possibility of change and progress. This, on some occasions, may simply be a decision made to face certain opportunities, as a kind of tool that would prevent leaving the comfort zone. Similarly, it does not always trigger stagnation; on the contrary, by accepting the living conditions they have, one can aspire to improve them, as in the case of people with disabilities, who seek support from people in the same state.

It should be noted that there are differences between a conformist person and one who is satisfied. The first simply ignores the small opportunities for progress, using the justification to let the environment know that, as it is, it feels good and is not going to risk losing it; the person who is satisfied, however, will not reject the coming change, since he accepts the comfort he has and is open to taking initiative in new projects. Generally, conformism can manifest as a product of the education received, in addition to the behavior observed in the family nucleus; Some point out that, frequent failures, lack of motivation and the absence of a fighting spirit.

Normally, conformists are taken as people of great mediocrity. In social groups, they can be susceptible to the opinion of others, accepting them even though they disagree with them; This usually happens because their position within the community is valued and they fear losing it.
