We examine the interplay between a person's individual preference and the social influence others exert. We provide a model of network relationships with conflicting preferences, where individuals are better off coordinating with those around them, but not all pre- fer the same action. We test our model in an experiment, varying the level of conflicting preferences between individuals. Our find- ings suggest that preferences are more salient than social influence, under conflicting preferences: subjects relate mainly with others who prefer the same. This leads to two undesirable outcomes: net- work segregation and social inefficiency. The same force that helps people individually hurts society.
