When informational pressures are involved, people care about what other people think because they do not know what to think, and they rely on the opinions of others to show what it is correct to think. 3 Here people are inﬂuenced by what others say and do, not because they think that those others are likely to be correct (that would be an informational inﬂuence), but because they want to preserve their reputations. The basic idea is that people care about what others think of them, and they speak out or remain silent partly in order to cultivate the approval of others, even at the price of failing to say what they really think.
