People behave differently depending on where they are and the activities they are trying to complete. Wedding guests at a reception often dance. Some dancers are more conservative—choosing dances with step patterns like the two-step or a waltz. Other guests get funky and flail any way they like. Still, other guests may decide not to dance. When people use products, services, and systems, they behave in ways designers intended, and sometimes in ways that designers didn’t quite expect.
