    Okay guys, so this is my question...

    You know how the saying goes, "follow the leader" and how if an authority is doing X, then if that authority relates to us somehow we should also do X because 'what they are doing must be good/right, so should we'.

    And I won't debate here, I know its true...
    But can anyone (perhaps from TED, or Google) give me some examples and backup and some credit of where they are getting this information from?

    Why am I asking this?
    I have 2 lists of 20 groups in each list, group X and group Y.
    Inside X group there are 10 groups, and inside Y there are 10 groups.

    So in total there is 400 people.

    Group X and Group Y have both inside of them 4 groups which are 'the leaders'. Even though all groups are the leaders, they are the ones who stand out the most, and its not necessary that everyone looks up to them, its just they are the ones who are known the most...

    So I want to invite all of those groups, so what I want to do first is invite the TOP groups first, and then go to TIER 2 and TIER 3 groups and be like, "Well... TIER 1 groups are already in, it'll only make sense to get on it as well"

    Still with me?

    So what I want.. is some backup/data from TED or Google or any other site that shows how the process works of TIER 2 looking at TIER 1 and saying, "Oh ... if he did it, I should too just because he has more authority then I do"
