    would have been interesting to do this experiment on people who have thought about the trolley problem before. (hypothesy: they would be more likely to flip the switch) but maybe they would also be more likely to think that this is not real.

    easy i decide: -how many people -estimated value of said people -personal interst in said people vs. -trouble if I touch anything I take more responsability that if I do not
    in my case I would have (after looking for warning or train stopping buttons) instantly switched to trak 2

    0:43 He says impresive when the car stops, but it looks like there is blood on the front from earlier..
    That is called black humor.. I am sorry.

    28:47 was, to me, the coolest moment in this show. The psychologist guy's ability to stop Michael and get that moment with Cory was just incredible. It showed how two great minds, an intellectual one and an emotional one, can work together.

    I recently heard the "fair" solution to the famous trolley problem: Run a second train to run over the other party too.

    Extension to this experiment would be to place a relative of the track operator against random individuals on the other track and see the results.
    Most probably none of them would switch the track and thereby saving their friend.

    If I'd have been one of the subjects, I'm sure I'd have reamed them up one side and down the other for being evil, disgusting, thoughtless twits. HOW DARE they do that to me!

  • motorcyclelad

    I would’ve thought if I changed its course without knowing what I was doing I might be sending a train to hit a commuter train head on, so in this case I wouldntve have done anything. They should have told participants that the tracks meet up later and it doesn’t matter which track the train uses.

    Oh my god if this is real it’s so wrong. Seeing her expression and shaking after flipping the switch was heartbreaking and I cried.

    I sneezed while driving while listening to this at the exact EXACT moment that he sneezed in this video. What does that mean? What a crazy coincidence. Did my brain predict the sneeze and trigger my sneeze as a response? So weird.

    only about three minutes in but my answer is simple. An can SAY I would flip it. But I'm pretty sure I would do nothing. Rather just freeze.

    "The Greater Good" my ass - that's tyrant talk. You just lost a viewer. You don't understand fundamental morality AT ALL. You had NO RIGHT to concoct this traumatic experience for those people by way of deception. You don't own them - they own themselves - and you have no moral ground for making such decisions for them. You LIED to get what YOU wanted, and your justifications don't matter. It also doesn't matter that they're not upset about it, because in all likelihood they don't understand their natural law rights either; being raised in this dumbed-down, morally relativistic society.

  • Teabeeo

    In my opinion, this is very easy to detect for the subjects as a fake scenario, next time aybe you should consolidate someone on how to actually stage a believable scenario like this, it's shame, and I would not use this footage as evidence to prove anything.

    I think most people would fear being charged with murder. Lets drop the ethics of this for a sec, even if you're saving some people, the act of changing a trains direction so that it can mow someone else down has got to be against the law. Idk how I feel about that tho
    This and I'd figure that someone had to have heard the train. They're loud af lmao I would expect everyone on the track to be capable of moving out of the way without any interference from me

    People hand picked by "Ethics Board Members" to mitigate their own guilt and accountability to the harm done. The results of your unethical experiment are contaminated, invalid and yes, it did harm. You all are horrible. Smart people are truly one click away from psychopathy. I take that back. Less then one click. I include you too Michael.

    This was not tested. Cory was an actor. 27:22 you can see the switch is already moved to track 2. Here is his IMDB profile: Go down to his self credit. I knew there was a reason I wasn't paying for this. Deception for views.

    Any employee "schooled " in their given corporation's safety doctrines WOULD NOT touch the controls / rail-switch the train from the original path. To do so would shift a percentage of the culpability in the breach of rail management safety policy away from all employees on the track and onto the employee who threw the rail switch. If/when an employee acts to throw the rail switch, they now become part of the outcome and share in the liability /become complicit in the failure mode. Further, there may have been other outlying information in the event that the rail-switch operator could not have been aware of through visual feedback alone. A fatality will be incurred in either instance. In the scenario shown, any veteran employee would have had the time to run this mental calculus. I have seen one similar event in real life where an individual shifted a fatal outcome to sacrifice one for many. He was eviscerated by HR & Legal arms of his company and summarily terminated. He now owns the horrific memory of the event and a service record from his past employer that has left him with no real future job prospects. That's the real world experiment in human psychology, though. Keep trying...

    I often wonder is psychologists could use performance artists as a means of getting around ethics boards.

  • Tegan WR

    I think the type of job someone has would affect if they flip the lever or not. As a boss and business owner I’m used to being in difficult situations where you have to make split second decisions that require you to trust your gut. The only thing that may pop into the back of my head is liability and if there could be possible legal repercussions if the wrong choice was made. I would be really careful to make sure I was perceiving the situation correctly. Even though this thought pop into my head it wouldn’t affect my decision to flip the lever especially if I thought my actions would be saving peoples lives. One interesting thing is when I saw the people who didn’t flip the lever they reminded me of most employees who don’t act and take a leadership position in a time of need. There are a lot of employees out there who will sit back or wait for someone else to do something instead of taking responsibility. They also make excuses for their actions to justify why they didn’t act!

  • The Tea Drinking Owl

    @Vsause , There is a third option people don't seem to have considered. Instead of having to choose between 2 options to collide with, why not have the vehicle be able to stop in the distance it can see/detect. There is also the fact that when driving if you see a child or someone who looks like they might be drunk, you either slow down or move to a path which is safer for both groups and coding for something like that may be problematic.
    You are a very good channel and teach very interesting subjects, thank you.

  • Offer Your Soul To Me Dark One

    Here's the problem with the trolley problem, Simplifying things makes a problem, If I said you need to go up 2nd floor but there is nothing around you that could help you that would mean there is no answer, but a lawyer wouldnt think that way he would say use what ever you were wearing to create a rope or say not a THING means there are other people around that could help you climb up.
    But my real answer is, Id kill the 5, if 5 people died, the government or the management would take actions to prevent this from happening again, because killing 1 would mean its just and accident but killing 5 means its a tragedy and need a solution to prevent future disasters ^_^
