Sociophysics Approach of Simulation of Charismatic Person and Distrusted People in Society Using Opinion Dynamics
The problem of socially isolated people who are not trusted by the people around them is considered using a new opinion dynamics theory that can handle both trust and distrust among people. This can be not only in the real world, but also in human relations on SNS. Using the new theory of opinion dynamics, we perform simulations related to isolated persons. We found that a charismatic popular person could be saved by having a relationship with an isolated person. However, on the other hand, the charismatic population is weakened. The best way is to resolve distrust of themselves by everyone before using the popularity of the charismatic person.
