re: The Stanford Prison Experiment - Revelator
[quote]Meh, there was a lot of issues with the experiment. Zimbardo actually told them to exert power as much as possible. They were also fed information by an ex-con on how to be even bigger a-holes. [/quote] Could be, but the urge to exert power over another or to abuse said powers has to b...
