People all around the world live in their own little word. We live in different societies with different norms. Depending on who we want to accompany us in your world, be keep different distance. We have a public distance that we use when we speak in front of a smaller group or in a classroom. We have a social distance to someone we don’t know. The photo shows how the Finnish people act while waiting at a bus stop. They are masters in having an abundant social distance to the once they don’t know. Everyone have a personal space to somebody when we great by shaking hand or walking hand in hand with someone. We allow one another to have eye contact when we are personal, we are close enough to see each other’s pupils. In the intimate distance do we only allow people we know very well. This distance do we use while giving someone a hug or other close body contact. Once again is Finnish people a great example when it comes to master an intimate distance with a social distance since they visit the sauna naked together with people they don’t know. This often happens at public indoor baths with saunas.
