Do not infringe their interests. My own opinion reflects your position about any given statement or situation. It is formed on the basis of analysis and deep reflection. Draw conclusions in favor of their assessments and interests. They may overlap with the majority opinion, but the latter must not come into harm. Otherwise, it will be your opinion, therefore you simply will have nothing to defend.
Filter incoming information. Do not take based on the evaluation of the statements of other people. Do not be distracted by useless topics and conversations. Appreciate your time. Because its a waste deprives you of many opportunities. That you defend their right to their own opinion.
Build confidence in their views. Study the topics that interest you to strengthen your own opinion. If you directly or indirectly for any information, do not take on faith the public the facts, check them, look for more reliable sources. Take from them only what you need.
Be true to your beliefs. Society dictates its own rhythm and priorities. Your neighbor or colleague has a new job, a new car. Don't try to keep up with him. If your old car has the necessary features for you, why change it? If a new job will require you a huge amount of time, will be deprived of communication with close people and will lead to constant stress, why do you need this work? To defend their position, always remember that, not yielding to his priorities, you risk losing more than the purchase.
Act in their own interests. Don't be afraid to break stereotypes. Stereotypical thinking is not your thinking. First, the crowd will resist and hinder you. But then, because of the lack of patience and dedication, she'll back off. And you'll go about your business, you will not have to defend your point of view.
