What is the difference between "conform" and "adapt"?
Could you clarify the words' meaning and usage with examples?
First, let's look at the Cambridge dictionary's definition:
to behave according to the usual standards of behavior that are expected by a group or society
to change, or to change something, to suit different conditions or uses
What I understand from the difference between these words is that adapting is changing our behavior/thought/attitude to suit a new environment (maybe permanent change), but conforming is just following the new environment's rules.
