There is a big gap between what people say / think they behave and act to how things are actually occurring in real time, either consciously or unconsciously. The observation is a process that should be performed several times in different environmental conditions in order to identify patterns and long-term behavior of participants and the relationship with their surroundings under the chosen conditions.
