The advantage of severe mirrored image is the suggest among the vices of dogmatism at the one hand and philosophical skepticism at the different. The advantage of artistic individuality is the suggest among the opposing vices of conformity and eccentricity. ultimately, the advantage of sociability is the suggest among the extremes of docility and rebelliousness.            The 3 virtues jointly offer a ordinary approach to adapting to alter. the tactic is usual since it is in accord with a continuing cycle of activity—tension/movement/harmony—that is ordinary to all residing issues, Dewey's approach to adapting to alter calls for, in either the person and in the neighborhood, the synthesis of integrating and differentiating forces.
