God no. Plastic surgery is the ugliest thing on the planet. Its so obvious who's had it done. I agree it can be useful to people who REALLY need it (like if they were in a car accident), but really people - it doesn't make any of you people out there look any younger!! Instead they look like people trying to hold back what's naturally going to happen. You look like people who are terrified of of getting older, so you seem older than you might actually be because if you are so worried about look

there's a difference between "plastic surgery to look younger" and "plastic surgery to *look-more-attractive*" we're talking about pre-teens and sub-30s doing such stuff. so your argument on ageing is pretty much invalid

More like scientific-rigor fail. Don't sweat it, OP. Obviously physical attraction was far from the only variable here. The other subject was also out on a different road at a different time and under different conditions.

Are you serious? Of course she didn't know what was being tested. If people know what's being tested then the results change. Like if you're testing how many times a person blinks in a second, they'll become self concious of their blinks and start blinking at an abnormal rate. By telling her what was being tested, she may have come with nicer clothes, nicer makeup, or acted in a different, more "attractive" way, which would influence the results. Think before you post.

Actually, this is not an unusual premise or design for a social psych experiment. They are allowed to be run without full disclosure beforehand as long as participants are fully debriefed afterward and it is determined by the IRB that they can not/will not be harmed by not having that information ahead of time. In fact, sometimes participants are told that one thing is being tested when it is in fact another, to keep them from figuring out the actual purpose of the experiment and skewing the r

#21, it's possible the other participant just blurted it out, more or less. For example, she could have come in to the lab and said, "Wow, that was fun. Dozens of guys stopped!" or whatever random thing that accidentally clues OP in to the results. The professor could have not had time to stop her, or maybe they talked afterward. I doubt the professor gave the other girl's results to OP directly.

This sort of study has been done before, because the people who are being studied (the people who help) are not at risk. It would pass the IRB, but it would never get funding or get published because this EXACT study has been done and replicated several times. It's a fake FML.

I disagree. It could have been a very informal, unofficial experiment. My brother's class does shit like this all the time. It hardly takes a lot of time or effort.

Whoever is thinking of full disclosure is an idiot. Scientific experiments are done usually without many of the participants knowing the testing procedure or what is really being tested. Let's put it this way.... the subjects KNEW they were damsels in distress on the side of the road, what they didn't know what the study was actually on how attractiveness affects people into helping others. So they KNEW a part of the experiment and played the part but they didn't know the truth of the experiment

Actually there are multiple experiments like this that have been IRB approved, conducted, and published. Also, IRB's approve studies that use participant deception all of the time. that's why you DEBRIEF them afterward.

i think you know what to do...DON'T BE SO UGLY!!! hhahahaha, sucks to be you! maybe your children will be beautiful hehe, yeah right, ugly runs in the family!

People should only get plastic surgery if they truly want it, not because people tell you to so you look more attractive to them.
