There is almost an unspoken rule that says people should not walk pace for pace next to a stranger. When people first noticed me, they would either stop or speed up to go at a different pace than me. However, when I adjusted my pace to theirs, they would question me. For this norm violation, other people did not notice me or say anything besides the person I was walking next to. Other people who were not involved in the experiment probably assumed that the person I was walking next to was my friend, which is a normal thing to do. Therefore, they did not question me or give me an odd look.
