The Stanford Prison Experiment



Normal people can become monsters given the right situation. That’s the standard narrative of the Stanford Prison Experiment, one of the most famous psychological experiments of all time. But what if the cause of its participants’ cruel behavior wasn’t what we’ve always been told?

    Humans are all the same when born. Its just the environment that changes them, those changes becomes habit and when those habits stick to them, it becomes their personality.

    It all comes down to their personality when that environment changes.

    The experiment was very different though, in stanford one group held all the power, and the prisoners were powerless, whereas in the puzzle room "both groups" had the same amount of power, making the experiment completely different to the first one.

    We should thank him for showing how easily elitism and the need to appease authority can warp behavior by placing blame of said behavior on those things.

    Wait, so how can a study be legitimate if the conductor of that experiment used his son to get the results he wanted? Idk, it may not have much bearing on it but it's questionable.

    Well, they won't need us if we don't get them to act unruly through retaliation. Sounds familiar.

    I think the problem with Michael's experiment was that the groups weren't encouraged/pressured enough to act cruelly.

    You could've done 2 rounds. 1st round the other team wins then they will believe that the other team exists and then the results might be different.

    so… let's take an original experiment that showed how hierarchical power brings about oppression and tyranny but this time…. let's REMOVE all sort of hierarchical power. RESULT: you just did an entirely different experiment. this one shows how people are probably going to retaliate if you push them. did you really need an experiment for that? how do you think revolutions happen? push the people continuously and they will fight back. now let's get back to HIERARCHY: create systems which are based on hierarchical structures and you will never do away with cycles of oppression and revolution.

    I call bullshit on the test. If everyone in the world were like your test subs the world would be diffrent. But its not you need to mix the people next time. Leadership roles will make themselfs, given more time aswell.
    Look at the internet.
    People are 100% shity to others on here.
    We are evil. We do hurt others for enjoyment.
    Other then that I enjoyed the video.

    I wish he didnt say it was Ak 47. It was most likely a AKM with a under folding stock as they are extremely more common and cheaper than a Ak 47.

    How you say the Guards in Zimbardo's experiment thought something was expected from them, same can be said with the experiments that Vsauce did.
    Both teams talked about how they were suspicious the experiment was about how they'd REACT to being blasted, hence making them blast less, and that there wasn't even any other team.

    Also, with Vsauce's experiment, there is no authoritarian power if they know that if they blast at 12 they could get blasted at 12 straight away, which sets up the "retaliation" method where you really only retaliate to what the other team blasts because you don't want to escalate the buzzing.

    Had there been an objective, like whichever team completed the puzzle the fastest would get the money, and give the buzzer to only 1 team, who know they can't be blasted back, then I would like to see what happens.

    I say add one group member to the mix that is predisposed to cruelty, and leave the rest. See if the individual a) acts cruelly of their own accord given anonymity, and b) analyze the effects that the individual's behavior has on the other members. Will the others follow suit, or will they chastise the individual?

    Why didn't they do a group with low morality characteristics?

    I’m curious as to what would happen if you had a scale of personalities, across a longer time frame. Would the more compassionate break?
