The Law of Conformity
The Law of Comformity states that the more teenagers attempt not to conform to certain stereotypes and shared identities, the more they actually do conform to other stereotypes and identities.
For example: many teenagers become goths in an attempt to stand out as individuals, or else as a means of expressing what they feel is their "true self." However, in adopting the mannerisms, attire and musical tastes of the goth community, teenage goths ultimately end up conforming to a greater degree than they would have if they'd just worn normal clothes and not drawn attention to themselves.
