How is the community's individuality limited
Our individuality is formed by our experiences and environment. The environment is the same for almost every character, and until they are given their assignment they have the same experiences. The community is limited in that way, but it is not completely. Some things like witnessing the airplane fly over the community is something some people may not have experienced. This left a memory of fear with the people who witnessed it, who otherwise would not have probably not experienced fear like that.
The community is given strict rules limiting how they can act, and not letting them make mistakes. For example the pilot flying the plane that passed over the community was released because of going in the wrong direction, he died before he could learn from his mistakes. And they are punished if they do anything wrong, the children were harmed if they didn’t speak correctly or did anything different. Today those experiences would affect a person and make them who they are later in life.
how individuality effects us
Peoples struggles with individuality
People struggle in many ways with individuality some being afraid of not being accepted from peers or even family. Parents sometimes give the impression to their children that they want them to be different then they are. Sometimes this leads to them changing themselves to maintain parental approval. This can restrict someone's personality because they want to be accepted by family or peers.
In twins it is important that they grow up with a sense of individuality otherwise they will feel like just part of a pair. There are many things parents of twins can do to make sure they grow up emotionally healthy. That also means that they can grow up thinking like they are nothing more than a part of the pair. Many things can make a twin feel like they can't be individual, or that they don’t have any individuality.
Twins within the community
Twins in the community are not allowed, the lightest is released. They release one of the pair, for the only reason that having two identical people would get confusing. This proves that the community doesn’t have individuality, otherwise they would have been able to grow up as two different people. In the community they can’t have two identical people walk around because they don’t have the chance to be different in other ways, so they would turn out the same and would get mixed up.
