that which we call sin in others is experiment for us
Like all psychological experiments, the Stanford Prison Experiment is very interesting. It is a sort of a variation of The Milgram Experiment, which represents a simulation study of the psychology of imprisonment conducted at Stanford University, which was stopped only after six days, since the dramatic effects on the subjects took hold of them very quickly. I can hardly wait to watch the movie which illustrated the experiment as well. In the mean time, i remembered that i should start a post which should contain a list of classical experiments in psychology and their implications.
