Hey OP, I agree with your post. I don't believe its all monkey see monkey do. In some case, that it is the reason, as we have followers in this world
Back to your point, I would argue that we develop a propinquity when we are around people for a while. You start using words that they used on a
regular basis, as well as use their mannerisms. Its just something that you pick up. Some people are calling it monkey see monkey do, well if thats
the case, our whole life is based of monkey see monkey do. Question: Where do we get our mannerisms, slang, and accents anyway.
Answer: It comes from the people that we grow up around (friends, family), TV, music...etc. To me its bigger than just monkey see monkey do, as if
that was the case, we just mimic everything we see.
