The Stanford Prison Experiment & The Psychology of Evil

In this video, we’re going to explore the social psychology of the Stanford Prison Experiment. This famous study by Zimbardo is famous for its revelation about the power of social influence, and the effects of evil on human behavior.

We’ll be discussing the experiment, its results, and the implications of its findings. We’ll also look at some of the key psychological concepts that were uncovered by the experiment, and how they can be used to improve your own social interactions. If you’re interested in the psychology of evil, or the power of social influence, then this video is for you!
