I choose project 1a: Becoming Deviant for a day because I had been interested in the reaction of others post to my deviant activity in trying to violate a social norm. 1 social norm which I discovered while I was grocery shopping one evening was people automatically claim the things belong to them once it is put in their own basket. Even though technically it is not it still belongs to the shop until purchased. As intended, I violated a social standard by going to a supermarket to pick up a couple of groceries at local Super Target store. While picking them out, rather than picking items in the shelves or the store main floor I obtained them from a different customer's shopping cart acting like nothing is outside of the normal, shuffling through their shopping carts for things that I enjoy then continue as normal. Before, taking action I'd looked around to see that the folks in the shop and predicted who are furious by my deviant action by making assumptions based on their own facial expressions or attitudes in scene. I expect this because I presume it's more based on behavioral aspects that affects people's actions . Therefore, I assumed if they're already having a bad day, they might react in an even more nasty way compared to someone who's jolly, who might even advised me to select out of their shopping carts. I also initially anticipated the responses in a same-sex situation to occur immediately right after I catch things from people's grocery cart and also possibly see them respond in a more negative manner compared to a situation of the opposite sex where I expect them to respond positively. Just supposing that there may be some type of gender bias that people have others. Primarily on gender roles of what's expected and not expected of.
