Hello, I'm dr. Bocchiaro hese are the aims of my study: 1. test how people would deal with an unethical and injust request; 2. see the differences between what people say the would do and what they actually do.
Self-selected sample of 149 students from UV University
Please, write an article to convince people to take part at this sensory deprivation experiment. It's important that you don't point out the bad thing about it!
The study took place in a laboratory. Students were splited in two groups and each group had to predict what the others would have done in an injust situation.
PILOT STUDY: small scale test conduced in order to evaluate feasibility to predict an appropriate sample size and to complete a full-scale research project.
RESULTS: 3.6% said they would have obeyed, at the end they ere 18.8%. 64.5% said they would have blowed the whistle, at the end only 31.9% did it. The whistleblowers were the students with more faith.
