After growing up very bright, and knowing how to make good decisions and not just follow what others were doing, how does one then give that up and do the opposite? Suddenly, it is right to jump off the bridge just because others are doing it too, but that's not what we were taught when young...So, I am curious as to HOW intelligent individuals are able to train themselves to become part of a group mentality? I am honestly asking because it is something I can't fathom. It seems at odds. I know this could be asked in any academy forum, but I really think of Air Force as being particularly intellectual, so I wonder if this presents a struggle there for cadets. What skills do you have to learn to be able to go from being the free thinking leader that got you in, to then following orders as a cadet, to then leading again?
