Do conformity in rock-paper-scissors reduce interpersonal space?

Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) We examined whether conformity and synchronization in “rock-paper-scissors” game playing influence interpersonal interaction, that is, the extent to which participants voluntarily approached experimenters, measured by proximal distance (interpersonal space). We conducted two conditions: Draw and Count condition. In Draw condition, a participant was required to play “rock-paper-scissors”, to shake their arms simultaneously with an experimenter (synchronization), and to present their hands leading to a draw (conformity). In Count condition, instead of playing “rock-paper-scissors”, the participant was required to look at another experimenter playing “rock-paper-scissors” by himself, and to count the number of times each hand (i.e., rock, paper, and scissors) occurred. There were three sessions per condition (24 trials/session) and inter-personal space between participant and experimenter was measured in each session. Interpersonal space tended to be greater in the count than draw condition. This suggests that conformity and synchronization influenced interpersonal interaction behaviors.
