Why is it that all of us wish to find people with whom we belong with(groups, friends etc) yet we also want to be the special one (the phrase one in a million) ?
I have never been able to wrap my head around this. When we look at humans biologically, every individual has a different gene coding, yet the same biologists also group people with similar genes together for experiments and such. And when we take an example psychologically, lets say people going for group therapy, they feel better because they all share a particular kind of trauma or maybe similar experiences but the same individuals also think that their problem is unique and nobody can understand them.
What is with humans? We want to be similar and yet be different at the same time? Why is that? So what is the theory then? We are different but not distinctively different from one another?
