Oooh, this was a good one. I know that I'm definitely "stay away" from strangers. I'm not sure if that's a protective mechanism, because depending on the situation, strangers can be a good thing, or not. If I'm in a roomful of nurses, I would be friendly because I'd figure we had a lot in common. If I were on a dark street at night near an ATM, I would probably not be friendly at all. So actually this challenge just made me think - obviously we treat different people different ways at different times. But sometimes it's very hard being the stranger and breaking the ice when everyone knows everyone else but you. So that's a good lesson when new people join an office, or a group - make them feel welcome.
