What are some of the similarities between the Socs and the Greasers?

At the beginning of Chapter 3, Pony says that the two types of people are essentially the same, down deep.  But all he really talks about is how they are different.  He and Cherry decide that they are different because the Greasers let their real selves show and the Socs keep things bottled up.  But we’re not really told why they’re similar.To me, what makes them similar is that they are both groups of teens who are somehow trying to figure out a way to deal with what society thinks of them and expects of them.  The Socs have to deal with the expectations that come with being rich.  The Greasers have to deal with people thinking they are thugs.  But both groups are really trying to figure out how to be themselves.I think that’s a lot of what this book is about — teens trying to be themselves while dealing with what society thinks they are and what society tries to push them to be.  Both the Greasers and the Socs have to deal with that.
