|Detailed Description of Method/Results||
Each individual upon arrival was administered a Stroop color-naming test, which is used as an indication of her or her inclination toward uninhibited behavior. The Stroop test had the participant first name the ink colors of 44 colored blocks. In the first set of words the color of the word matched the name of the color written (example: the color red written in red ink). |
Following this procedure, the participants were asked to name the ink color of words that were written in a different color (example: the word green printed in red ink). After completion of the Stroop task, each participant drew a number out of a hat and was randomly assigned to one of two groups: high social pressure and low social pressure. Within both of these groups was a subcategory of participants who were asked to remember an eight-digit number (5 out of the 10 in each group).
In the high social-pressure group, the Asian experimented presented the chicken feet dish. The participants were made to believe that this dish was a traditional delicacy, a favorite of the experimenter, and that it also held some form of some cultural significance. Each participant was presented individually with the dish, and their reaction was recorded for later review.
In the low social-pressure group, the non-Asian experimenter presented the chicken feet dish. In this group, the participants were told that they are lucky to be in the selected group because they would have the opportunity to try a Chinese meal. As in the high social-pressure group, each participant was presented with the dish individually, with the reactions recorded for later observation.
The participants who chose not to eat the chicken foot are reassured that their results will still be useful, and those that tried the meal were encouraged to eat a few of the toes. Those participants who also had to remember the eight-digit number were then asked to recall the number; this was done to ensure that those participants were cognitively-divided during their encounter with the chicken foot.
Concluding the experiment, participants were asked to take part in the Ten Item Personality Inventory, which was designed to determine how likely participants were to have seen a chicken foot presented as food.
