Assignment 4: Weekly summary
Part1) Using the concept of demand characteristics, describe what caused the subjects to persist in the meaningless tasks and to perform the dangerous tasks described in Orne's studies. How do these examples illustrate the need for double-blind studies, and how do they control for the placebo effect? Do you think that it would be possible to conduct Orne's studies in a double blind fashion?
The experiments that were involved in the Orne's study were pretty meaningless, yet very interesting. I believe that it goes to show how people really are and shows the true character of individuals, meaning they probably would not perform these task if they were not in some sort of mind altering state. I have to say that I am not familiar with the concept of hypnosis and unsure of what state a person is really in while they are in this mind altering situation; with that being said, in my reading I realized that most people would not have done these meaningless things if they were not under hypnosis. I find it most interesting though that in the text book it mentions about different cultures and how they adapt to ideas and behaviors that are passed down from one generation to the next. In the previous article it said that in the Orne's studies people were actually willing to pick up snakes barehanded, which I think is totally ridiculous; however, in some cultures this is something that is done for fun. Double-blind studies, I believe are very helpful in many situations. With that being said I do not believe that a double-blind study should have been done with the Orne's tasks. For one, it would be too dangerous with some people not knowing what was going on. Also going back to hypnosis, wouldn't a person know if they were in that state of mind anyway? In the placebo effect I believe that the double-blind study is very useful. I completely agree with what the book says about " Just thinking you are getting the treatment can boost your spirits, relax your body, and relieve your symptoms."
