Walking in sync makes enemies seem less scary.
“When men match each others’ steps, purported criminals seem less physically formidable, a new study shows. The results, published August 27 in Biology Letters, suggest that matched movements in men may foster fighting alliances, a behavior seen in apes and some dolphins and whales.”
What this does not discuss, but that which we do all over our blog, is whether they are talking about in-phase or out-of-phase synchrony. This is an important distinction, though not likely when it comes to the topic at hand here. We discussed this and many other things on podcast 74.
