Conduct a field experiment on norms in our
society. Break a commonly held social norm, such as standing too close
to someone while speaking. Do it for both people you know and strangers.
How did people behaved when these norms were broken? Did the subject(s)
involved (friends or strangers) affect the outcome? Can this type of
experiment be conducted in a more formal lab setting?
