Does it mean following what other people say or doing things your own way????
It means that it follows convention. If you get directions from point A to point B for example. If you follow the directions exactly, then that was conventional. If you stop for a Coke, a popcorn and a movie then that would be unconventional.
What Is Conventional
It means doing something the way which offers the least resistance.
Doing something the traditional way is doing it the way it has always been done.
Doing something your way is called following your heart.
