Studying sociology at Kilgore College and finding the topic quite interesting. As a primer, I’ve been listening to a podcast on social psychology from UC Berkeley. The subject tries to describe what drives people to make decisions in society. The “breaching” experiments were especially entertaining. This is where students were asked to breach social norms and observe how unsuspecting people respond.
For your viewing pleasure, I present some breaching of the social norms:
The Asch Elevator Experiment
Stretching exercises in the grocery store
Oh society, how your norms amuse us so!
