INTRODUCTION

A. A RECENT EPISODE OF CANDID CAMERA
REVEALED THE POWER OF PERSUASION. A
FAKE BORDER GUARD WAS SET UP AT THE
BORDERS OF MISSISSIPPI AND TEXAS. AS
PEOPLE TRIED TO ENTER THE STATE THEY

ELSE COULD ENTER UNTIL SOME PEOPLE

GROUP PRESSURE. THE STUDENTS WERE

EACH CARD THERE WOULD BE THREE LINES,
LINES A, B, &C. EACH LINE WOULD BE OF A

CARDS AND POINT TO EACH LINE THE
STUDENTS WERE TOLD. WHEN WE POINT TO
