The Urinal Complex presents itself in situations when subjects have to choose their spacial proximity to another subject. Subjects will choose to separate themselves from others in public areas. The condition usually manifests itself in parking lots, restaurants, and most importantly restrooms(usually male).
The most prevalent example of the Urinal Complex occurs in public male restrooms. Upon entering the restroom, subjects will search for the urinal which is empty on either side. If an open urinal is not available, subjects tend to opt for a private stall. The condition also occurs in public parking lots. Subjects have been observed circling the entire parking lot, searching for a spot that is vacant on either side.
