Pedro's high school has a dress code that prohibits the wearing of hoods, such as with sweatshirts or jackets. The principal stands in the hallway and tells kids wearing their hoods up to take them down. Most students, including Pedro, comply. One day, Pedro sees a group of older boys he admires sneak past the principal with their hoods up, and Pedro does the same. Explain the terms obedience and conformity in this scenario.
Pedro is demonstrating obedience by following the orders of the principal, an authority figure.
Pedro is demonstrating conformity by imitating the older boys and putting his hood up, because he is adjusting his behavior to fit a group norm.
