  • Its a term used by those that think they know it all to define those they disagree with- when someone agrees with an opinion (often a majority opinion) even if its through their own research or thought someone from the opposing opinion will get up on their high horse and call them a sheeple.

    As far as a definition- its an insult meaning you follow the crowd, blindly.

  • I agree with many others - those who follow/go along the "herd" without thinking for themselves. Usually a group of people being "shepherded" by one person or institution. It can apply to any kind of situation - religious, political, health related, general social situations...
