The profusion of wireless enabled mobile devices in daily life routine and advancement in pervasive computing has opened new horizons to analyse and model the contextual information. This contextual information (for example, proximity data and location information) can be very helpful in analysing the human behaviours. Wireless proximity data can provide important information about the behaviour and daily life routines of an individual. In this paper, we used Bluetooth proximity data to validate this concept by detecting repeated activity patterns and behaviour of low entropy mobile people by using n-gram and correlative matrix techniques. Primary purpose is to find out whether contextual information obtained from Bluetooth proximity data is useful for activities and behaviour detection of individuals. Repeated patterns found in Bluetooth proximity data can also show the long term routines such as, monthly or yearly patterns in an individual's daily life that can further help to analyse more complex and abnormal routines of human behaviour.
