gray research law

loc 1235 – Peter Gray.. published essay: why zimbardo’s prison experiment isn’t in my textbook……… this is a study of prisoners and guards, so their job clearly is to act like prisoners and guards – or, more accurately, to act out their stereotyped views of what prisoners and guards do.

Much research has shown that participants in psychological experiments are highly motivated to do what they believe the researchers want them to do.

What a beautifully crafted quote about research. (

“Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose. It is a seeking that he who wishes may know the cosmic secrets of the world and they that dwell therein.” Zora Neale Hurston
