In this experiment, we are going to obtain the result of one’s willingness to cooperate with a person whose attitudes are wholly the same or entirely distinct from the one’s attitudes. Consequently, with the result, we will be able to figure out that which has the higher willingness. And to be clearer, we can divide this experiment process into a series of steps.
1st step: Primarily, we need to select a subject to participate in this experiment, and then ask him to fill out a survey of personal attitudes, such as the question of Smoking, Welfare, War and so forth.
2nd step: After, we need to determine which group of the experiment are we going ...view middle of the document...
For example, if the subject filled out that “I am in favor of smoking”, as for group 1, we need to fill in that “I am not in favor of smoking”.
3rd step: In this step, we are going to ask the subject to study the new survey carefully. And next, we ask them to fill out an interpersonal Judgment Scale to evaluate the person whose attitudes he saw, and at last, ask them to tell us how much he thinks he would like the person and how much he thinks he would like to work with the person in an experiment.
4th step: Finally, in this last step, we ask the subject to return the Interpersonal Judgment Scale to us, and we figure out the score with counting the number according to the answer that the subject has checked.
In the following diagram, there are several scores that are reported by the class.
Group 1 Group 2
10 11 10 7 12 12 12
7 7 12 7 9 8 12
4 11 5 6 8 13 8
7 3 8 10 10 11 10
2 6 7 9 13 10
As we can see from the above chart, Group 1 has a total score of 140 within 19 participants. The average score of one participant turns out to be 7.37. Group 2 has a total score of 137 within 15 participants, with an average score of 10.47.
After this experiment, we can interpret that people in the world always tend to cooperate with a person who has the similar attitudes. However, in my opinion, due to this great diversity in the world, we need to first understand that we can’t always be working with the people that
