No matter how much you feel you are an individual you still represent “…” to others. For the individual who doesn’t associate with others from your faith, creed, color, political group etc you’re their one representative. They will see your image, tone, and words then associate others in your tribe with them even if your mirror is a bit cracked. Why because it’s more simple than exploring the whole group and finding many of the intricacies and differences within. Therefore the pressure is on to not only look and act the best you can for yourself but the group(s) you represent to them.
