"Unlike the previous experiments we’ve discussed, where participants were randomly selected for 'high-power' and 'low-power' roles, in this experiment participants from diverse backgrounds filled out a questionnaire about their own sense of power in their actual lives. Subjects were randomly paired off to take turns sharing stories in which they experienced great pain, or emotional suffering." (01/09/11)
