The idea that people play different roles in daily life and show different behaviors depending on where they are and at different times of the day is a familiar idea. Most people behave differently consciously or unconsciously than professional self or private or intimate self. According to Goffman, when people know that others are watching, they are in “early” behavior. The behaviors of the previous stage reflect internalized norms and expectations of behaviors, which are determined in part by the environment, the specific role that people play in them, and the appearance of people. How people participate in front-line performances may be intentional and purposeful, or they may be habitual or subconscious. Either way, the early behavior usually follows routine and learning-based social scripts shaped by cultural norms. Waiting in line, boarding a bus, presenting a transit permit, and exchanging happy hours with colleagues over the weekend are all examples of highly routine and scripted front-row performances.
