  • What Trick or Treating Teaches Us About Human Nature  ·  News & Media  ·  Stonehill College
    B Waxman Time com A look back at the social scientists who have been doing studies involving trick or treaters throughout the years This Halloween children who trick or treat at a Yale economist s house in New Haven Connecticut will be asked some questions back before they get their loot First they will be randomly assigned to go to a section of Dean Karlan s front porch either the section with a photo of First Lady Michelle Obama the section with a photo of 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton or the section with no photo that s the control Half the kids in the Clinton and Obama areas will be asked if they know who the women are The kids will also be asked whether they d prefer fruit or candy The professor wants to see if the visual cue of Michelle Obama will lead more children to choose fruit over candy That s what happened when he did the experiment in 2012 and if it happens again that may suggest the First Lady s health campaigns have really been ingrained in kids heads Karlan isn t the first social scientist to design an experiment around trick or treaters In fact there were a few studies published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology in the 70s and 80s at a time when social psychologists were eager to get out of the lab and examine behavior of the broader public says retired psychology professor Arthur Beaman Another bonus it was different from lab studies done with college students where said students always know they re part of a study says Edward Diener a professor of psychology at the University of Virginia and the University of Utah who worked with Beaman on a number of papers The annual tradition of using kids as research subjects has seen a renewed interest of late and the particular appeal is that these real life examples can contribute interesting insights into human behavior Of course based on any one study you wouldn t say a theory of human nature is supported or not supported says Bonnie Klentz Professor of Psychology at Stonehill College in Easton Massachusetts But observing trick or treaters in their element does provide some unique benefits The anonymity or self perceived anonymity of trick or treaters can make for some particularly interesting research Scott Fraser professor of neurophysiology teaching at the University of California Los Angeles realized that made them ripe for testing one of the conditions of deindividuation theory the idea that behavior is dictated by context and something like anonymity can make people less inhibited In the early 70s Fraser Beaman and Diener designed a study involving more than 1 300 kids in the greater Seattle area on Halloween night When the kids were told they may only take one candy and then left them alone in the room the kids who remained totally anonymous meaning they weren t asked their names took the most candy while
