Don't Look

Rachel Hangman

Don't look- Purpose Statement:

The purpose of this experiment was to see if people will look even if you don't tell them to. I became interested in this experiment because then you can see if people will look even when you say not to. The information gained from this experiment will help others know more about people’s reactions to commands.

Research


What I researched for my project is to see why people would look if you told them not to or if they look when you tell them to. What I think is that they will look no matter what just because of how they are. It’s like when your mom tells you not to have another cookie out of the cookie jar all that does is make you want to take it more.

Why would you do something someone told you not to do? Well, what I think is that you don’t want to do it, but what happens is that you get so tempted to do it because someone told you not to do it. When someone tells you not to do something it makes you want to do it even more. This is only because temptation makes us do things we might not want to do, but we do anyways because someone tells us to do it. Every time someone tells you not to do something, all that is doing is pressuring you to do it more so in the end you will probably end up doing it and getting in trouble or regretting doing it later.

Hypothesis

My hypothesis is even if you say don’t look they will look anyways. I base my hypothesis on how people react to everything around them.

Materials

3 people

3 objects to hold up.


Iv: What you are saying.

Dv: Reaction

Cv: Same tone all the way through

Cv: Similar commands given

Procedures

1. Say something to see if they will look or not.

2. Hold an object up

3. Mark down if they looked or not.

Results

Mom: looks: ⅘ didn’t look: ⅖

Gene: looks: ⅗ didn’t look: ⅗

Mitchell: looks: ⅘ didn’t look: ⅕

Conclusion

My hypothesis was even if you say don’t look they will look anyways. I base my hypothesis on how people react to everything around them.The results indicate that this hypothesis should be considered right based on the results of this experiment because they looked even when you say don’t look or look. If I were to conduct this science fair project again I would get the same results.
