It was clear, at the start of the experiment, a couple of people would talk back at Elliot, but as she and the brown-eyed group continued to bring them down, the blue-eyed group sat back and submitted to the intimidation and criticism.

    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.
