Abstract [en]

A strong research record on conformity has evidenced that individuals tend to conform with a group’s majority opinion. In contrast to existing literature that investigates conformity to a majority group opinion against an objectively correct answer, the originality of our study lies in that we investigate conformity in a subjective context. The emphasis of our analysis lies on the concept of “switching direction” in favor or against an item. We present first results from an online experiment where groups of five had to create a music playlist. A song was added to the playlist with an unanimous positive decision only. After seeing the other group members’ ratings, participants had the opportunity to revise their own response. Our results suggest different conformity behaviors for originally favored compared to disliked songs. For favored songs, one negative judgement by another group member was sufficient to induce participants to downvote the song. For originally disliked songs, in contrast, a majority of positive judgements was needed to induce participants to switch their vote.
