are you a sheep and follow the flock?

Typical type are politicians and business yes men hanging onto others coat tail.
Do you say "Yes" just to please and really mean something else? or do you actually mean what you say.

Have to say these "sheep" types to me are happy to be lost in the crowd, or to be individual and stand out from the masses. One doesn't have to be rude to be an individual but has thoughts and ideas that don't comply with the run of the mill.
Just because one does not agree with everyone else doesn't mean they are wrong same as the rest who agree are right.

So which are you "sheep or individual"

Re: are you a sheep and follow the flock?

Not a sheep! I weigh things up and try to see what's really going on in the background. Too much "smoke and mirrors" and conflicting information around at the moment. I like to hear all sides and then use common sense to decide what is best for me.
I've got to the point where so much doesn't make sense so I keep my head down, don't follow the majority and plough on my own way.
If folk think I'm bonkers, I don't give a flying fig!

Hi

Absolutely not, I make my own mind up.

Ah... then I assume you're talking about Covid or Brexit and which side you are on.

No you missed the point. Do you agree with everyone else on everything "sheep" or disagree and make your views known "individual"

I don't necessarily agree with everyone else and would disagree if necessary but I wouldn't make a big issue about it.

We are all individuals.
