Today’s topic: Strange situations
What would you do if you were in a strange situation?
What do people do when they are uncertain?
Usually people look to others when they are uncertain. They do what other people are doing. Researchers created a room for people to fill out forms. The room would slowly fill up with smoke. Researchers watch how the participants would react to the smoke.
This is what they found:
When the participants were alone in the room, they would immediately leave when they saw the smoke. When there were other people in the room, they wound not react to the smoke. Even when it completely filled the room.
Don’t always rely on others, think for yourself!
