Humans are social creatures. We pay attention to each other. As a result, we influence others and they influence us.
Our strongest influence is in childhood. Parents influence their children directly and often. Later, in school, peer-pressure persuades us to do uncharacteristic acts as we struggle to fit into the social environment.
In blogging, we watch others and get inspired by their fashion-choices. Our friends influence us and we, in turn, hopefully inspire them.
Who influences you? Fashionistically and otherwise? Do you believe you influence others? In what ways?
I wonder about this. Because I'm quite different and open about that, I wonder if my existence affects anyone. Does it?
