I have always so to speak been the leader of the pack, however in this day and age.....there's still people who seek self worth on whether they are accepted within certain social groups/or cliques. I'm a fairly friendly person and quite easy to get along with....but on the contrary...i just simply could care less whether are not i was with the supposed in crowd. Haaaaa"Sigh" What are your thoughts?

You crave peer approval just like everyone else, although perhaps in different forms, and with different people.

Arguing otherwise would make you some sort of biological anomaly that is beyond the scope of basic human interaction. The important question is whether or not you are willing to compromise your values in order to fit in with a certain group.

Default Uh No!

I don't crave approval from outside sources. I have siblings, friends and associate's that i surround myself with...that's all the love and acceptance i need. I'm always accepted by god..even if my family and friends were to walk away. My lips were made for speaking, eating etc. not for seeking out friendships/a need to be with the in crowd.

I crave approval from the fine folks here at City Data. If I don't get that approval, I'll probably go hang out in a corner somewhere and cry my eyes out!

Your post makes you sound like you are about 13. I have no idea what "in crowd" you are referring to. Of course people seek acceptance from others. Whom they seek it from varies of course, upon the individual. I guarantee that if you have a job, you had better seek acceptance.
