18. 'Lord of the Flies' by William Golding
You are not one to get swept away by mob mentality. You know why it happens, you get the dangers behind it, and you prefer to keep a cool head and an independent mind when things start getting dicey. Which means that when it's Black Friday and people are stampeding with their red carts, or when a family dinner turns sour with an old grievance coming out during dessert, you're not one to join in with the throng.
