Yeah I agree with number two. That's a bad experiment, you don't tell the control that they are the control. That's like telling a group that they are getting the placebo, it's kinda ruins the experiment.

what's the point of this study? how do you think people is going to act around attractive woman? I think the study was a scam, it was so the guy can destroy a woman by telling her she is plain looking then get them in bed with him

first off the experimenter NEEDS to inform the volunteer everything about the study. it's not a matter of opinion. for any study that wants to be credited that one factor of many needs to be met. so he's in the right to tell her she is in the control group and no if she made an attempt to make herself look better through make up she could be kicked off the study so as to not skew the results

You should have told him that by asking you, he was taking part in a study to see how ugly men perceived beautiful women, and that this would be a science-journal published study with full disclosure. That's what I would have done =]

Well, it sounds like she would be a confederate for the study where they would be looking at the influence on the men... so she could be informed on her grouping. Just a thought, is it possible they might have been looking at how the self image of a woman could influence a man? Regardless, if you were asked to participate in any form of study it is ethically required for the experimenter to return you to the same mental state you were in when they first engaged you. You can report them to your University's human subject research ethics board.
