Polyglot Gabriel Silva shares his main reasons for learning foreign
language(s) and discusses why it's important to know the reason
regardless of you level in language learning.
He talks about the idea of social norms stopping him from talking to a person because it might not be proper to talk to some one.
Recently when I was in Moscow, Russia, I noticed that Russians keep to themselves on public transportation and don't chat with each other on the metro. It's likely a social norm because the metro is so incredibly loud. I think most tourists figured this out quickly enough and I only saw people asking directions at metro platforms where it was quieter. Sometimes it is just fine to follow social norms.
