Contrarians are the ones who take the opposite view of things and usually shun conventional wisdom.
While most of us conform to society’s norms and are usually penalized for displaying any form of resistance, the contrarians have their own unique philosophies of life and repel the wisdom of the crowd.
Various factors go into the genesis of a contrarian:
Contrarians are the rebels and are unusually certain about their divergent views. They reject the status quo and are not concerned about social graces.
Contrarians are the wild preachers of the social circle, proclaiming that they have figured out the world. Famous contrarians, like Martin Luther King Jr., and Mahatma Gandhi risked going against popular opinion and gathered a mass following while defending the causes that they believed in.
To be a hero, one has to move away from the collective whole and take solitary action.
