As one makes decisions in life, people do not think of the harmful effect’s predictability produces. When a person demonstrations being an individual, they are noticed more than a person who does the identical things as everyone else. Holden shows individuality is endangered, meaning that as time goes on, people become more hesitant to be different or go against what society thinks is acceptable. In school, no one knows how to just be their self, instead everyone just wants to “fit in”. Social media now plays a big role in influencing the idea of fitting in. Kids of all ages watch television, use Facebook and find out the ideal way one should function. People want to make their mark on this world, but do not realize that unless the chain of traditionalism is broken, that goal will not be accomplished. Being an individual is the most positive thing in society. If only you could teach individuality to make people feel less burden to fit in. Individuality gives you the confidence to go out into the world, not just happy but feeling content in doing so.Holden decides to visit and stay with Mr. Antolini. After hearing about Holden’s expulsion from Pencey, Mr. Antolini approaches the situation with Holden. He tells Holden what he fears will happen if he continues the path he is taking. As Mr. Antolini says, “I have a feeling that you’re riding for some kind of terrible, terrible fall”(187). By this, he means that Holden should learn more about the “human condition” and confront or accept it, not just run away from it. I believe that Holden becomes defensive and starts to argue this idea because, in a way, he agrees and doesn’t want to accept the truth. The truth is that Holden would rather point fingers at society and every imaginable person, rather than himself. This is a typical teenager.If Holden wants to function suitably in a society, he can either change his morals or beliefs to fit his environment, or he can get mad at society and change his morals to the complete opposite and live without a social structure set in stone. The discussion of traditionalism is in fact addressing the larger matter of inner happiness. It is important to remember that staying true to oneself is more important than surrendering to society’s definition of normal. So, personality and individuality play an important role in allowing oneself to learn from all decisions and actions one may make in life.
