    To think along the same lines.

    Hello!

    Here is the following situation:
    The question: Does the way we wear our clothes makes us the person we are?
    The answer: The clothes don't make the man. You'll often find that most people think along the same lines and are interested in the same things regardless of how they dress.
    Can I say 'think in the same way' instead of 'think along the same lines'?

    Thank you very much!

    Re: To think along the same lines.

    Yes.

    It's 'in a similar way' rather than 'on the same way', but there is no great difference here.
