Social Experiement: To Stand or Not to Stand (no Kaepernick)

In this social experiment, everyone in the room is in on it, with the exception for one person.

Every time they hear a beep, everyone gets up and stands very briefly and sits back down.

Question is, would you also stand?

I know everyone will said they wouldn't fall for this, but this has more to do with just simply following.

    Damn...I can't say whether I would stand or not cuz I just don't know. I would hope that I would at least ask ppl around me why they were doing it instead of just following along for nothing.

    I think most ppl would ask, but if there's no clear answer, just, "we stand when it beeps", then I would probably stand, too. Not to follow, but so I don't feel awkward or have anxiety about consequences to it. Although, the consequences wouldn't be severe, it's just the thought that would bother me.

    my aniti-social/introverted ass would have told the chick at the desk I need to take a "business" call and could she call or text me when I'm up I then would have went to the car to play clash of clans until called. I hate packed waiting rooms like that

    Wouldn't stand because obviously there is no reason to. A beep going off isn't something normal in a waiting room where people are standing for it.

    What does it mean there is no fence just a gate? how do you have one without the other

    A fence is like a wall or barrier.. the gate is the doorway.

    "The trap of thinking"

    Do they mean it's bad to think?

    Sheep are predisposed to being followers and doing things the way they are conditioned to, without thought. Maybe that quote means its not necessarily bad but could be dangerous to think if your thoughts differ from the majority
