One of the measurable personality traits defined by psychology is that of divergent thinking. The way this is tested is that someone is given a common object, such as a pencil, and asked how many uses they can think of in a set time frame. Then there answers are scored against collected data both for number of responses and how many are different from commonly given responses. Sometimes this personality trait is defined as the ability to think outside the box.
Now, twin studies seem to show that about half of who we are; our personality, talents, intelligence, ect.; is learned and half is genetic. So, sometimes I just have to wonder, is it part of how we are created that some people are just more likely to conform and go along while others just don't feel that need as much?
I know, for me, when I was going to the institution I often felt like maybe there was something wrong with me because there where some things I couldn't stop questioning, could not force myself to conform to. But, I don't want to get into a place with this that I worry that I may not be allowing myself to be conformed to God.
