01:51
giving people a chance to take money and
01:52
he’s trying to put money in what’s wrong
01:54
with these people you would think it
01:56
would be easier for people to take money
01:57
but people just hesitate what do you
02:00
think will happen if we change up the
02:01
experiment and remove me from the booth
02:04
now I’m up in the control room watching
02:06
the action will people be more trusting
02:08
if I’m not there imagine you’re on your
02:17
coffee break you walk by a booth with a
02:19
sign saying free money what would you do
02:22
would you take the cash and how much
02:25
would you take to see how trusting
02:29
people are we set up a booth and offered
02:31
free money to everyone who passed by
02:33
like some free money when I was in the
02:36
booth people were reluctant to take the
02:37
cash but eventually some did now we’ve
02:40
refilled the box and we’re gonna make
02:42
one big change we’re going to leave the
02:45
booth unattended I’m up in the control
02:47
room watching the action being recorded
02:49
by our hidden cameras without me
02:51
guarding the cache we expect people to
02:53
take the money I would wouldn’t you
03:05
if I was walking to work and saw that
03:08
box of money I’d do the same thing
03:13
Wow that didn’t last long we loaded it
03:17
up with cash one more time
03:25
as we expected the money was gone in a
03:27
flash when I was in the booth people
03:30
took just a few bills they didn’t want
03:32
to seem too greedy when I was gone it
03:35
was a free-for-all they took as much
03:37
cash as they could carry is there
03:39
anything we can do to keep people from
03:40
taking the money even if I’m not there
03:43
what if we replace me with a giant pair
03:46
of eyes will people still take the money
03:49
oh oh come on man live the dream dude
03:57
live the dream look at these two guys
04:01
they’re like yep
04:01
drinks on me man no people just aren’t
04:06
trusting they just assume that there’s a
04:09
cash free money a sign that says so a
04:12
box of the cash take it people just
04:16
don’t here’s a guy he’s observing he’s
04:22
like what is this free money huh whoa I
04:27
wonder if it’s real what’s he looking
04:31
for a bigger box of cash
04:34
this guy’s skeptical he’s thinking about
04:37
it and he’s looking around he’s like
04:41
what is this how could this be
04:42
he’s so confused and the eyes are
04:46
staring him down causing even more this
04:53
guy’s afraid to even touch it
04:55
don’t worry it doesn’t fight see the big
04:57
pair of eyes staring people down people
04:59
feel watched they’re not taking the
05:01
money there’s reason for that there are
05:04
huge sections of neural territory
05:07
devoted to processing and creating eye
05:08
movement when people see these eyes even
05:11
though it’s just on a poster it reflects
05:13
something deep in innate inside of them
05:15
and you can see that in these people’s
05:17
responses to those watchful others
