"rules" and self-organization

I think it would be interesting to find out if there's a link between age and 
range of experiences, and the way people would react to the room with chairs 
in a circle and a theme on the wall.   I'm guessing that young adults would 
react differently from people in their middle years, and from people nearing the 
end of a career.   Part of the story, I think, links to the experiences of 
people in the room, and how they acquired those experiences.   
Facilitator/storytellers also embody things in terms of gender, race/ethnicity, language(s) 
used, age, abilities, class, all those interesting things that relate to the 
worldview of the people who respond to an invitation.   Previous experiences with 
processes like Open Space would matter, too.
