THis american life looks at how people choose to do the wrong thing even when they know its not best for them.
I love the study 30 minutes into the episode (Ignorance for Dummies) about the less someone knows the less they know how little they know about it. “The Dunning-Kruger effect”
Interesting movie based on the 1960’s psychologist Stanley Milgram. Interesting how much people criticized him for things he did that are more tame than most prank shows inflict on people just for entertainment. Also funny no one doing the fake shocking mentioned the if the learner was really in so much pain he could just remove the thing shocking him.
