"People don't want to be like themselves. They all choose a model to imitate, or if they don't choose a model, they accept one ready-made. Yet I believe there are other things to be read in a man. No one dares. No one dares turn the page. The law of imitation - I call it the law of fear. They fear finding themselves alone, so they don't find themselves at all."

We call them sheep.

I try to be a little more like Bill Clinton everyday. (except for the heart-disease-inducing eating habits) ;-)
