on negative security awareness

We talk of an individual's security awareness as "high" or "low".

Recently, I waited for a friend at a locked entrance to his place of work. A carpenter (who - unlike me - had legitimate access) arrived, opened the door, and gave me that "aren't you going to follow me"-look when I remained outside, waiting for my friend.

This guy exhibited a polite, friendly attitude. He also displayed cluelessness on how to handle his access card.

Actively inviting risk - is that a case of negative security awareness?
