Brian Rosner looks at recent research that examines our human quest for individualism. The results point to our relationships with others.
"You are not the product of your own conscious deliberations and choices. When it comes to forming your identity, your subconscious does the bulk of the work."
"You and I might like to think of ourselves as boldly expressing our individuality in order to find our true selves, but the truth is that rather than being a single, soaring eagle, eyeing our prey from a great height, we are more like a honking goose in a tight V-flight formation."
