  1. I'm interested in seeing if there's any benefits.
  2. As a side note, I don't believe the study is biased. I'm just trying to address criticisms others have made about it. Critics say Zimbardo coached volunteers how to be cruel and didn't show most of the experiment's footage.
  3. Apparently, Zimbardo had a hidden agenda to prove prisons in America were too cruel and dysfunctional to be effective. He put out ads which looked for college students who wanted to volunteer for a study on prison life. This implies he was biased from the start.
  4. I've heard this experiment is biased. Do you agree? If so, how and why?
  5. Why is it silly? Chimps are highly promiscuous. They're also our cousins. Why wouldn't it make sense to say we're naturally inclined to promiscuity since we evolved from them? It's true that potential constraints changed like cultural expectations via. monogamy, but I don't think they've changed much. Cheating rates are high.
  6. I've done a bit of scientific research and found we're hardwired for more than one partner. Here's a few facts I've learned. * A survey was conducted on 16,000 people from every continent. Participants said they wanted more than one sexual partner. https://www.washingtonpost.com/arch...-innate/4cc92d41-21f1-4a52-a89a-721658f096be/ * Biologists say women are hardwired to have multiple sex partners to boost the chances of having healthy children with the best chances of survival. Females across the animal kingdom are promiscuous. Since we evolved from other animals, women are likely hardwired for promiscuity. The strongest evidence of promiscuity is in testicles. Sperm competition means males evolved to make as much sperm as possible to eliminate competition. The more promiscuous females are, the larger male testicles will get. We find female chimps are very promiscuous and male chimps have large testicles. https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2000/sep/03/anthonybrowne.theobserver * Monogamy is rare in the animal kingdom. Most are promiscuous. * 80% of early human societies were polygamous. Monogamy is a modern social invention. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/...y/201605/monogamy-is-not-natural-human-beings * Many people do not have just one partner in their lives. They've had more than one at a time. This is not monogamy. It's serial polygyny. https://www.bustle.com/articles/121...nogamous-heres-what-5-researchers-have-to-say It's fascinating information. I'm wondering what to make of this.
