Observation

Observation. As an individual, observe how others use space in at least TWO of the following situations:

Using rest room facilities

Selecting a seat at a table or counter where the person seems to not know anyone already seated.

In an elevator

At a store counter ��� for example the deli counter at a supermarket.

In a ticket line at a movie

Selecting a seat in a movie theater when the individual is alone and does not know anyone already seated.

NOTE: You should observe in several different locations and at several different times. Observations might be for 5 minutes or 20+ minutes depending on

the location.

Write a short paper (1-2 pages) describing the situation and what you observed. Do you have any conclusions about why this is the behavior? Did you notice any

differences among people of different ages, genders, race/ethnic backgrounds, etc?
