Little Albert

Posted: October 24, 2011 in The More You Know

If you’ve never heard of the ‘Little Albert’ experiment, it’ll be a nice read for you on google or youtube. In short, John Watson used loud scary noises to train a child to be deathly afraid of small white lab rats. But the outcome of the experiment resulted Albert’s phobia expanding to all other forms of anything furry and bipedal. Catastrophically, Albert had to leave the experiment before Watson was ever able to undo the childs fear.

 

So somewhere out in the world, there was a kid that was deathly afraid of almost any animal.

This person is not little Albert, but the results seem to be just as bad. Go ahead and watch a grown buff tattooed man sob at the sight of puppies.
