The Stanford Prison Experiment is one of the most well-known research endeavors of the 20th century. A group of psychologists had undergraduate students play “guard” or “prisoner” in a fake prison, just to see what would happen. Let’s just say it didn’t go well - the experiment was cancelled after just 6 days and 5 students being dismissed for extreme emotional trauma. What led to these conditions?
