Agree, this has been true at least since the first Pastoral societies, well before the Pyramids.
95% or more of People are followers, only a few are Leaders.
Which I donīt find wrong, at least from a practical sense.
Too many strong leaders trying to run the same flock tend to fight each other and do nothing useful.
Human nature I guess.

I wonder how a full bench of test equipment in the background effects one's perception of another being some kind of audio authority? I'm sure all the other hobbies - cooking, boating, woodworking, fishing, drag-racing - have their visual counterparts that say "this guy must be a lot better than me - I should strictly follow"
Thereís a saying in racing Ďall show, and no goí

Maybe your reputation preceded you? (to be fair, I can see youíve been dialing it back lately)

Ainít that the truth!
People are so wrapped up in their little insignificant worlds that they canít be bothered to take the time and understand what others are trying to communicate to them. Aggravates the heck out of me!

Iíve never been on FB or anything like it.......this is about as social as I get!

I saw that game too.

Bill Belichick got told by the Pats management to move with the times and use a Tablet. Chucked it to the ground after a few minutes. IIRC, he later won Superbowl with his paper notepad as usual.

My Ex is forever posting fairly tired and rancid second-hand views to FB. When I look in. I don't tell her though. She doesn't want to hear.

I'd say conflict is a natural, while getting along takes determination, experience and eventually becomes a skill.

That's why division is so easy to exploit. "If you multi-way speaker builders would only listen!"

Even discerning truth takes effort; The Baloney Detection Kit of Carl Sagan

It's so much easier to just allow sway from the visual impressions - "look at all the equipment that guy's got - he must be right!"

I wonder if it'd be different if it was "audiobook" instead of facebook, or "youspeaker" instead of youtube? ;')

I've just had a great idea.

Instead of all this profiling shenanigans that the webs do in spying on our lives, why don't we just tell them what they want to know?

Google, I am a WASP in the financial bracket B. I vote Conservative, and like Women. Incline to Science and Environmentalism with a currently discredited IQ grade of 128. Now really, get on with your own lives. And leave me alone.
