That's one of the que... You know they would never be able to get away with this study today, but you know, back in the 60s. So they were answering this.
Now next to them, next to them, there is a confederate, someone who they don't know is part of the study. And this guy is going ballistic.
"How dare they" You know... Really getting angry. And you get angry too.
And you get even angrier than the control group who went through the exact same thing, except for the fact that they didn't get the injection.
So what they did was they looked, they saw their bodies is getting very aroused and they interpreted this arousal as "oh I must be really angry".
And they really did get, even angrier than they would have. They got angry in the control group as well
but less angry than those who were injected the epinephrine.
Now second condition. Also injected.
Had a questionnaire without any provocative questions. And next to them there was again a confederate, whom they thought was also doing the experiment.
And that confederate found by happenstance, a hula hoop on the floor and started to shake it. You know, dance and...
You know it was going crazy, they are happy and laughing.
And the person who was just injected epinephrine went wild.
So happy and joyous, much more happy than the control group,
who were in the room with a person dancing with a hula hoop, but did not get the injection.
In other words, he interpreted the raising in adrenaline "Oh I must be really happy now". And they were really happier.
