Not really. I tend to doubt about it. But I used to believe to everything I was told as a child.
What the heck is Kool-Aide supposed to be?
No.
I neither know what the FDA says.
No. I tend to be oppositional.
Nope.
Not really.
Nope.
Nope.

Nope.
Yup.
Yup.

I do not do things just because others do it.
I neither try to be different on purpose.
I just do what my instinct tells me to do.
If in the process I'll agree or disagree with some people, it's just irrelevant to me. I don't seek other people's approval or prise, and don't care about their criticism.

Kool aid.............

If you know how to sweeten it up just right, it can be super addicting.


Or just buy the kind that already has the sugar in it.

I drank kool aid when I was a kid and still drink it now.

Many of these have little to do with being a "sheeple" and only apply if you are doing these things to follow the crowd and not by your own decision.

Do you believe everything you're told? No.
Did you drink Kool-Aide when you were a child? Yes and I still do.
Do you live your life vicariously through TV shows? Yes.
Do you believe what the FDA tells you? Some things yes, some things no.
Do you follow authority figures blindly? No.
Do you read newspapers? Once in a while.
Do you believe in Democracy? Yes.
Do you put your faith in doctors? Yes, mostly.
Do you follow fashion? No.
Do you *follow the crowd* because it seems right even if it feels wrong? No.
Do you hum commercial tunes? No. I don't hum and don't watch tvs except for dvds so I don't see commercials.
Do you buy cheap food because it's on sale, even though it's unhealthy? Yes because I'm poor and that is what I like.
Do you believe that innoculations are a great necessity? Yes and I recently had something that I may have been able to avoid had I got the vaccination but they didn't have that one when I was younger.
Do you listen to *pop* music? I don't listen to any music.

It's a powder that you mix with water to make a flavored drink.

FYI :"innoculations" are vaccines.

Speaking for myself - I dont want to die in a pandemic- so I do consider vaccination programs necessary.

They left out the most important question: "Do you take lists of dumb questions like these seriously?"

If so - then youre a sheeple!

But I think that when people like popular things, it's often because they genuinely like it, not just because it's what everyone else likes. Popularity itself rather guarantees this because of increased exposure due to that popularity.

I mean, I used to have a really negative opinion of people liking popular things, until that was explained to me. Now, I don't really care why someone likes a thing, I assume it's genuine and let it go at that.

Do you believe everything you're told? Not everything, so no.

Did you drink Kool-Aide when you were a child? Sometimes.

Do you live your life vicariously through TV shows? No. There is more to life than TV, you know.

Do you believe what the FDA tells you? Mostly.

Do you follow authority figures blindly? Yes. I respect the law.

Do you read newspapers? Whenever I get the chance

Do you believe in Democracy? Mostly.

Do you put your faith in doctors? I do, unless they're quacks.

Do you follow fashion? Not usually.

Do you *follow the crowd* because it seems right even if it feels wrong? No, because they may pressure me into doing something I don't want to do.

Do you hum commercial tunes? I admit to doing so sometimes. :oops:

Do you buy cheap food because it's on sale, even though it's unhealthy? Only if it's a good bargain and is not expired.

Do you believe that innoculations are a great necessity? Pretty much, unless they're the kind that make you sick like some of the flu shot vaccines.

Do you listen to *pop* music? Yes, usually from the 70s and 80s.

Well it's official. I am a sheeple. *baa*
