Very different but there's another very good program produced by BBC called 'The People Watchers.' The three main people on the show are some psychologists and by devising certain situations they can demonstrate how we behave and why under certain conditions. Maybe I'm not explaining it very well, but I'll lay out some parts of what made up an episode.
Just how altruistic, just how generous, are you Brits? lol OK, one of the psychologists, a woman, set to the streets and would walk up to random people with a request: "what time is it?" "please, can I borrow your mobile? I've left mine at home, and I desperately need to make it..." And then she began asking for spare change. In most cases her requests were granted.
Then they moved on to another psychologist walking the streets, this one male. They fitted him with exactly the same favours to ask but the difference was stark; mostly shunned while they were so compliant with her. Then they fitted the woman with two bandages to make out her arms were broken. lol She persuaded a stranger to peel and feed her a banana; and a university student unzipped her backpack, removed a book, and read an extract from a part she needed to hear for a test...
OK. Two groups divided into two with the intent of winning the most points for their team. After the first round it was even, but then the teams were given names, or titles - one was referred to as the Football Hooligans while the other team were now Einstein... something. After the second round, the Einstein team improved dramatically while the Hooligans fell and their behaviour was more rowdy, too. Now, the final round. Not much change for the hooligans but the Einsteins were given these helmets resembling their namesake and this made them suffer. The theory is that they felt inadequate.
How do you tell when a person is lying? They got people in to say something, and then another would respond, "true," "lie," but even if the person had known him/her for many decades, he/she was liable to be wrong on most accounts. The problem is there's belief spread about liars holding shifty dispositions, but how your shoulder is arching, or how your jaw is moving uncomfortably - not important. Just track the voice. A man stood in front of a young woman with a blindfold and guessed correctly most times, not being distracted.
Finally, our three psychologists worked for a charity in a shopping mall. One of them, the man, added an extra layer of weight beneath his uniform so as to appear very overweight. Another one, a woman, went to lengths to appear older. That left the final psychologist, who was youngest and pretty.
Well. People who were interviewed said that they simply weren't aware of the first two charity people at all before giving to the pretty girl. Some admitted they gave it to her because of her looks, and they appreciated their honesty, at least.
