The power of conformity: How good people do evil things

After World War II, many psychologists wanted to address the question of how it was that people could go along with the evil deeds of fascist regimes.Solomon Asch's experiment alarmingly showed just how easily we conform and how susceptible we are to group influence.People often will not only sacrifice truth and reason to conformity but also their own health and sense of right and wrong. It's the last question of the quiz, and Chloë knows the answer: it's Bolivia. Yes, it's definitely Bolivia....

Why We Should Be More Optimistic About Human Nature

In the novel Lord of the Flies, a group of young boys are shipwrecked on an island and eventually turn savagely against each other. The book is a cautionary tale about humanity’s underlying cruelty and the need for civilization to tame our darker impulses—a message that resonates with many people today. But that’s not what happened to a real-life group of shipwrecked kids in 1965. Unlike the fictional Lord of the Flies characters, they developed a game plan for survival that was cooperative, fu...

Was the Stanford Prison Experiment a Sham?

Frosty Piss writes: The Stanford Prison Experiment was conducted in 1971 by psychology professor Philip Zimbardo using college students to investigate the psychological effects of perceived power by focusing on the struggle between prisoners and prison officers. In the study, volunteers were randomly assigned to be either "guards" or "prisoners" in a mock prison, with Zimbardo serving as the superintendent. The results seemed to show that the students quickly embraced their assigned roles, with ...

7 Dreadful Psychological Experiments (and why science may have benefited from them)

When it comes to psychological experiments the period spanning the 40 years or so after the end of World War II was nothing short of scary. Scientists were physically administering electric shocks to people with sometimes, high doses of electricity, putting others (often children) through severe mental and physical trauma and abusing animals to an extent that doesn’t even bare thinking about fopr a compassionate human being. We also had the authorities at Harvard turning a blind eye to experimen...

'The Fear Factor' Explores the Impulse within Us All

Sometimes a book's success is not just the power of what it's trying to tell us. It can also be about the perfection of timing. This year will most likely be known as the year of the reckoning. Our stars might not have slipped over to the other side so much as burned out gloriously in front of us. The list of sexual indiscretions from allegedly trustworthy television personalities and elected politicians has expanded in a horrifying fashion, like bugs crawling out from under boulders. Cal...

Five Steps to Tyranny

In 2000, the BBC broadcast an hour-long documentary called Five Steps to Tyranny, a look at how ordinary people can do monstrous things in the presence of authority. Horrific things happen in the world we live in. We would like to believe only evil people carry out atrocities. But tyrannies are created by ordinary people, like you and me. [Colonel Bob Stewart:] “I’d never been to the former Yugoslavia before in my life, so what actually struck me about the country was how beautiful it was,...

10 of The Most Widely Believed Myths in Psychology

In a sense we're all amateur psychologists – we've got our own first-hand experience at being human, and we've spent years observing how we and others behave in different situations. This intuition fuels a "folk psychology" that sometimes overlaps with findings from scientific psychology, but often does not. Some erroneous psychological intuitions are particularly widely believed among the public and are stubbornly persistent. This post is about 10 of these myths or misconceptions. It's importan...

When Dodging Questions Makes You Seem More Trustworthy

(Photo: Maddie Meyer) By Cari Romm We are a nation that claims to love frankness -- we collectively want you to give it to us straight, no sugar coating, no polish, a desire reflected in both our political theater and our pop culture. You can see it in Donald Trump's obsession with "political incorrectness," with Hillary Clinton's struggle to appear trustworthy; you can see it in the latest wave of disdain for the Taylor Swift PR machine, and in Jennifer Lawrence's constant fart jokes. But we a...

#LearningIs social

Humans are inherently social. We want to be accepted by others. Most of our learning is achieved within social contexts. I can't recall many examples where I have learnt something significant without the presence of others. From language acquisition, to basic numeracy and literacy skills, to more sophisticated activities such as public speaking, dining out with old friends or driving in traffic - all have been scaffolded and coached through the influence of others. Conversations are some of the...

The Real Lesson of the LA County Jail Scandal

Former Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca's recent guilty plea to lying to federal investigators about abuse in his jails provides a rare glimpse into America's correctional institutions, if one knows where to look. Baca's conviction - and that of more than a dozen other Sheriff personnel - isn't just an idiosyncratic tale of the demise of a lawman and his posse, but rather an example of how institutionalization systematically erodes the moral code of jail employees. That's why, in addition to...

The Facebook Guinea Pigs

“Let’s conduct an online experiment.” It sounds innocuous enough, that is unless you run one of the largest online social networks, and you didn’t tell the participants. The story centres around the publication of a paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS) under the rather Orwellian title “Experimental evidence of massive-scale emotional contagion through social networks” So, what did Facebook do, and WTF (why the fury)?
