  • Communication → Social Awareness → Lack of Social Awareness

Buddy travels to New York City and does not understand the societal norms. He acts in a manner that is not deemed socially acceptable for a man his age: he plays on rotating doors, jumps only on the white lines on crosswalks, and eats chewing gum off of unsanitary places, among other actions.
