Amazing what people/we will do in certain circumstances.

Usually a sort of 'peer pressure' thing, But many there seemed to be quite alone.

Classic experiment features a classroom scenario where all the other students (plants) offer incorrect answers to picture questions shown from the front of class.

Guinea pig eventually conforms. Despite knowing differently.

I think the pictures feature pairs of lines with a 'which is biggest, A or B?' type question.

Apologies for dissecting the frog, but I do find it fascinating.

Asch conformity experiments

Sadly this type of thing is/was behind many atrocities in the world.
