For this assignment you are to perform and write up a brief naturalistic observation. This project should be used with the chapter on Research Methods. Follow the guidelines below:
1. Develop a hypothesis which relates to a human behavior which you believe might be tested by observing people, undisturbed, in a natural setting. You may want to develop your hypothesis in conjunction with your choice of subject and setting. Thus, if you plan to observe waiters serving in a diner, try to make a generalized prediction about the behavior you expect to see and what you believe it reveals about the behavior of waiters (e.g. waiters will pay more attention to opposite-sex patrons than same-sex patrons).
