Mod 8 Breaking the Social Norms

Sometimes You Gotta Break the Rules

 Top of Form
Social norms are the invisible glue that keeps societies together. As implicit rules for social behavior, norms are really only noticed when they are violated. This assignment asks you to do just that: Break a social norm that everyone typically obeys.

Observe a variety of social norms in action for a few days, then choose one to violate. You should 
break the norm several times, rather than once, and in a 
variety of settings involving 
different people
Examples of some norm violations are: sitting right next to a stranger in an otherwise empty movie theater; violating gender roles, such as a woman opening a door for a man; raising both hands simultaneously to ask a professor a question; looking at other riders rather than the floor numbers in an elevator; singing out loud in public; taking more than the maximum number of items to the grocery express check-out lane; imposing on someone’s personal space; being excessively helpful or excessively difficult in response to a stranger’s simple request.


           Let’s be clear about some 

ground rules

First, you should not do anything illegal, unethical, dangerous, or obnoxious. Pointless pranks that waste other people’s time or money, or that might be threatening to others, are not allowed. 
Second, you should have a clear definition of what the norm is, and how your behavior would violate it. There are lots of bizarre behaviors you could perform, but many of them would not violate any implicit social rule. 
Third, you may want to run your ideas by me before you engage in the behavior to get an objective opinion about the first two points.

Write a response to the following questions:

1) Give a clear definition of what the norm is and how your behavior violated it.

2) How did you feel as you broke the norm?

3) What were the reactions of other people as you broke the norm?
