You get 2 extremes of people: politically sensitive, self-monitoring people, and non-self monitoring people (like me!). This article shows that the popular chameleons are good at parties, and political organizations, but can never turn their checking system off. That's why you should never marry a 'party person', but you are always forced to work for one!
Of course, since these people are constantly focussed on 'tuning', they never actually think. This allows all the situations, that I am constantly bitching about.
