Observational learning doesn’t always occur, so it’s essential to understanding the conditions in place when it does.
So when are we more like to imitate others? It happens when:
You doubt yourself and your abilities.
You are confused or in an unfamiliar environment.
You’re in a position of authority, like a boss, leader, or celebrity.
Someone is similar to you in some way: interest, age, or social class.
You see someone getting rewards for their behavior.
For example, let’s say four people go out to an upscale restaurant. One person frequents this type of restaurant while it’s the first time for the other three individuals.
The person who is comfortable in this environment knows what to do: when and where to place the napkin, how the place setting works, and how to communicate with the wait staff. Because he knows what to do, in this situation, he’s the authority.
The rest of his company are in an unfamiliar environment. And when we don’t know how to behave, we tend to look around and observe the behavior of others.
Somehow, we know who to observe by picking up subtle cues. So without having to think about it, the rest of the party subconsciously looks around and begin to discern who the “expert” is and what he’s doing. And this sort of process frequently happens throughout our development and the rest of our lives.
