Mia Ha ENGL 282 B Professor Phillip Savage January 24, 2018 Cracked.com Pitch Title: 6 Psychological Experiments w ith Terrifying Results 1. Stanford Prison Experiment The social psychologist who conducted this experiment is Philip Zimbardo and he became well-known after the horrible experiment. In 1971, he set out to interrogate the social roles that people played by using a group of male college student to participate to a two-week long experiment. In this experiment, some of them would live as prisoners and the rest as guards in a mock prison. When choosing the test group, Zimbardo picked for their roles without telling them, unexpectedly arresting the “prisoners” outside of their homes. The group of guards began to abuse the prisoners to the point of mental breakdowns. Zimbardo was supposed to have the “absolute power” which he could use to stop/intervene when the guards started to abuse the prisoners, however he did not stop them. Things became out of control and the experiment had to stop earlier than scheduled: it ended after just 6 days. The distressing result of this experiment had proven that people could really change when they are in power. - psychology-replication

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
