Behavioral conventionality has been deliberated widely and simply define in terms of impact of social pressure. Leiden psychologists Diana Kim and Bernhard Hommel doing a research through which they find social factors will not be necessary to produce or explain conformity. And According to their study, published in Psychological Science, people may simply confuse memories of their own behavior with memories of the behavior of others


It is usually happen people change their beliefs, thoughts and behavior when they saw other people beliefs and behavior, but the process of such challenges are not very well defined. A Kim as social psychology has define conformity as per social perspectives like pressure of group, wants to belong that group and belief in the group superior education and other factors. The objective of current study was to test that whether simpler tools may account for at least some conformity effects or not. This idea was introduce by Hommel, a theory of event coding, a general outline of awareness, action, and exemplified thought. According to this theory perception, awareness and action of our self and other are impartially was coded in a very simple way, so that people cannot differentiate them easily. This also explain why mock is so easy but they recommended that even actions without any social meaning can persuade conventionality effects, especially if they are similar to one's own actions.



In two experiments female participants were requested to rate the attractiveness of 220 female faces on a scale from 1 to 8 by pressing the corresponding number key on a keyboard. After each rating they were presented with distracting information: a video showing another person's hand pressing a number key, which could show a number that was lower than similar to, or higher than the participant's rating. In a following 2nd session, participants were asked to rate same 220 faces again.

As it was mention in the video that the number was randomly chosen, which mean they do not have any social meaning, just to divert the participants, so that participants manage the judgement faces into the direction of the distracting video. This conventionality effect was particularly strong with the movie showing the actual manual decision making act and weaker if just a meaningless number was presented on the screen, suggesting that similarity between observed action and one's own action matters. When social meaning was added to the distracting information the conformity effect turned out to be stronger than with mere numbers but still weaker than with the videos.

Why do we conform?

These discoveries explain that people do not need to adjust their behavior as to the other people behavior because they feel happy to do this, or you can say that they believe in the knowledge of the group, as some authors recommended. People look to signify their own actions and other people's actions similar. Once they have refereed a particular incentive, they seem to store the incentive together with their own judgment, but also together with other people's judgments. If they then face the same incentive again on another occasion, they simply recover all the incentive related judgments they have stored and react according to a kind of mental average of all stored judgments. Kim: "Our study suggests that conventionality should not be studied as a dedicatedly social phenomenon: the mechanism underlying it seem to be the same that operate on non-social information."
