The Stanford Prison Experiment

Category: You Live & Learn | 6 Comments | Posted 16:55

I'm sure most of you have heard of this - a psychology experiment in 1971 where a prison situation was simulated and quickly escalated. Anyway I just found this interesting website about it (by the main researcher Philip Zimbardo). It's a slide show documenting the whole experiment (with pictures and even some videos). Takes a while to go thru it all, but it's worth it (and come on, you must be bored if you're here!). You can also just read this shorter article at

Or you can not bother at all. Anyway, I will go and deliver my guinea pigs at their boarding kennel, and then start packing my bags, as tomorrow morning I will be off to Paris :D Back on Wednesday.


The shorter article link doesn't work cos there's an extra " at the end.
Didn't know you were going to Paris - cool! Enjoy your trip. Awwww @ pigs!!
