Observations and Analysis
I observed five subjects outside the entrance to a large building. In order to identify the subjects, I have given them the following letters; A, B, D, F, and G. Subjects A and B were standing at the entrance to the building communicating quietly, with slight variations in the volume of their communication. Subjects A and B took turns communicating, while one spoke the other remained silent. Both A and B were dressed in similar uniforms; however, B was wearing a matching hat. The two communicated, but remained alert as they scanned their surroundings. Immediately after a phone rang at an outside desk, B picked up the phone. It was B that responded to all the changes in the environment that the two experienced. Another man came outside, we can call him E, and after communicating with A and B, subject B whistled. A car responded to this whistle and subject B aided subject E in entering the car. At any point B was busy, subject A remained scanning and watching his surroundings. Standing directly across from subjects A and B were subjects D, F, and G. The two groups did not communicate with each other. D, F and G, wearing dirty uniforms, worked at digging holes in the garden. They planted flowers and made little communication within their own group. Communication was made by F, as he sang a melody. Although the two groups did not communicate with each other, it was clear that they were working to improve the same building. While A and B helped others entering and exiting the building, D, F and G worked on improving the appearance of the environment. They worked as two separate teams in the same surroundings.
