Social Choreography

Leads to: The Mark of Cain

Quite simply, some of us never picked up basic social norms during childhood. Consider: one can almost tell a Brit and an American apart by their age lines. Each adheres to a different set of orthodox facial expressions. Any culture has what I call social choreography, a set of conventional body language that is for most people acquired and carried out subconsciously. When a career outsider like me walks into the room and is out of synch with the collective ‘rhythm’, those who belong perceive that something is ‘foreign’ about me without knowing why.
