Most people reach the first one but the other factors such as safety and a sense of belonging depend directly on how hostile their environment is. In order to change the way American society views authenticity the factors above should cha The fear of not being accepted and in some cases being excluded and even physically abused also plays a huge role in why we cover.

Shirley Jackson writes about the loss of individualism, the loss of personal identity, and the necessity of conformation with the intent of informing the reader that it is detrimental to society as a whole.

Changes could take away their position of power and control, so they set rules and regulations that force people to think and act like them. The necessity for the young Mrs. Winning to conform stems from the traditions of the Wining family that are upheld but her mother in law, the older Mrs. Winning.
