Hello everybody, i want you to discuss the following statement :

" We don't need people who follow the rules. We need people with personality. "

Thank you for participating.

Firstly, the premise of Pro: "We don't need people who follow the rules. We need people with personality" is notably vague and without any additional explanation. Neither the resolution or the opening statement by Pro have been expounded on or outlined with any clarity.

A simple way of negating this premise is the fact that technically everyone has a personality, and that rules are put in place for a reason. In every single aspect of life we have rules, whether it's at work, at school, in public areas, in governing policies; such as the fact people are required to pay tax and other household bills, and rules even exist on websites, such as this one in which you have an official "ToS" to adhere to. In order to maintain fairness and structure, rules are necessary part of life. Once again there's no reason why a person can't follow rules and have a personality.
