    I like the idea of the video. This would have been a better test if the public was unaware that a camera was recording them. Many people deliberately jumped on it just because they saw your group and camera; vice versa, many people also deliberately did not step on it because of the same reason. Maybe set it up on a tripod a good distance away and zoom in for the the frame you want.

    There is no manipulation or control, by very definition this is not an “experiment”. It’s naturalistic observation at best.

    @ATLBrasoveanu If I say to you, “Don’t SMOKE” what don’t you do? The word SMOKE will most probably be your first answer and you’d be correct. However the word don’t is not processed by our unconscious minds, negatives don’t exist. The idea of smoking is now in your mind sorry for that if your a smoker. We are largely unconscious creatures, we’ve all driven down a road that is familiar to us and when we arrive we think, I don’t remember the journey. This is our unconscious mind taking over (temp)

  44. frostyuk2007 said,

    @mnm5476 The message also says “dont step here” and we don’t process negatives in our unconsciousness, for example what don’t you do? “step here” is the message our unconcious receives. This pyschological experiment worked whether they knew they were being studied or not. Imagine if the stepping point gave out an electric shock, they didn’t know that until they stepped on it. What you witnessed was a hypnotic effect of mind control, they were compelled to and controlled to step on it.

    I work in a big museum’s gardens … There’s signs everywhere forbidding you to step on places (such as the grass); and people completely disregard those … like sitting in front of the fucking sign … and it’s a huge percentage !

  46. Tech467 said,

    Wrote on November 3, 2011 @ 8:52 pm

    @LandenEctomy well the “do not step here” is a flaw in what they are experimenting. it does not give them very solid data because obedience needs to in most cases have a logical reason for obeying or a hierarchy involved. so that type of sign i believe would give a good representation of this. there are so many possible variables in what the sign says that will alter the reactions of people.

  47. Tech467 said,

    Wrote on November 3, 2011 @ 9:17 pm

    first, they see you with the camera. but for me, i believe this experiment is stupid simply because a makeshift sign taped on the ground that says do not step here, it runs through peoples minds as a joke, if you see something like that its obviously not professional and not going to be taken seriously because there is no reason why you cant step on a small sq ft of area on a sidewalk. obedience needs to either have a logical reason, or a hierarchy.
