i wonder if somebody could do this process, but slowly take out one person at a time and replace them with another suspect, until everybody is a victim at each other's whim

they did something similar with rats, there was food up a staircase, Every time they tried to go up there they all got sprayed with water. after changing out some rats they would attack the ones trying to go up there. In the end when there was no rats left that had been sprayed with water, but they still attacked everyone that tried to go up there. The theory is that human society also functions like that. to me it sounds like religion :)

I read about that quite a while ago, but I thought they did it with monkeys.

The experiment was done on monkies. Basically it explains mob behavior. When a large group is doing something individuals are compelled to do the same ( shown by above example) . Similar conclusion could be made about ****** content getting front page of this site. Also some comments get ridiculously high amounts of thumbs up or down due to this.

It's funny cause this can be applied to thumbing up and down.

Funnyjunkers tend to make their decision based on previous thumbs they see, I've noticed.

yeah like those comments with 35+ thumbs down. after like -6 it gets hidden anyway so there's no reason for most of those people to even thumb it

Which is why I log out and thumb my content up as an anon, and let the thumbs flow.

The deeper implications of this experiment is downright frightening. How much does society truly influence, suppress, distort, and condemn us as individuals? What more does societal pressures take from us? Who are we really?

if this didn't work on you there'd be a name for you. that's sociopath. i personally prefer turning in the elevator over a total lack of empathy

There is a distinct difference between not caring about what others feel, and not wanting to conform to each and every standard society places for us, irregardless of how useless they be.
