    Social Etiquette

    Have you guys ever noticed that people only act a certain way if they think it's acceptable? I find there are often moments where it takes one person to act a certain way, then other people will follow that persons actions?

    I was testing this tonight when I went out with some mates, there was a band playing and after they finished a song there wouldn't be much clapping or celebration. I decided to try something so after every song I would shout "wooo!" To see if anyone would follow. I did this for 6 songs and I was always the first one to shout. After every shout other people would join in with the wooing. I found this worked with clapping as well but it wasnt as expressive so not as many people joined in.

    I think the more comfortable people feel with a situation the more they are likely to react in a positive way as long as it feels acceptable.

    Have you guys ever noticed stuff like this?

    It's the bystander effect....

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    Its often referred to crowd/mob/herd mentality. Remember the London riots? Well many people were trashing and stealing stuff because others were. The bigger the mob the less it is about the individual.

    I've noticed something similar to this at a store I go to. I end up chatting with the owner lady and there will be a lot of times where there are no customers. One person will walk in and all of a sudden 5 to 10 people pull into the parking lot to get stuff. After everyone leaves it will be dead for awhile and the same exact thing will happen.

    It's sheep mentality. Turn around in an elevator, but be in front of the people and see if they turn around too because they're too uncomfortable.

    The turning, I can understand, but I didn't think it would go as far as removing a hat and putting it back on. That's really sad. But this stretches far back in history, especially during the dark ages where there were a lot of public executions. The speaker riled the audience up, and they demanded a beheading or blood.

    Not sure if I'd ever do that to be honest haha, I don't like taking $#@!s anywhere other than my house, it's my 'me' time. I have made $#@! noises in a toilet before though when I was drunk, that was quite funny

    Need some not-giving-a-$#@! drugs in my system. Otherwise, my balls are not large enough to do this sober.
