  1. Thanks for the useful summary. The experiment in which an honesty box is found to be more effective when a picture of eyes is hanging above it was interesting.

    A related ‘honesty box’ experiment I read about involved some people being told the room was haunted! No surprises about which group cheated less then!

    • Your Welcome, Peter. I’m glad you liked the article. I guess we can add superstition to the long list of ways that our minds go astray!!
