Project 17_week 15

My results are clear cut; they explain the progress over a course of five meeting sessions. Men were the ones who had the most social anxiety. But changes began to happen after the 2nd meet. This experiment solves problems that people experience on a day to day basis. Many people have trouble breaking that barrier for which they can be within a social environment without freaking out. This experiment helps those with social anxiety break out of their shells.The experiment reaches a new milestone for researches to take this to whole other level. The problem of social anxiety has correlated with group dancing to innovate new ideas of what other physical interactive factors play a part in breaking barriers. However, problems with the study that I encountered were if whether or not the subjects were comfortable with seeing the same faces every day. In the future I intend to circulate people throughout each trail so those of which do have social anxiety get to see new faces and converse with them in a short period of time.In conclusion, through the several trials being done with twenty subjects it has been proven that group dancing does indeed have an affect social anxiety. Many people had difficulties engaging in conversations and even simple greetings. Nevertheless, this experience has lead everyone to have greater confidence in themselves. With a little bit of music, a comforting environment and a small nudge, anyone with two left feet can pull this off.
