This conformity experiment by the psychologist Solomon Asch is extremely famous, I know, so I don't really need to mention it. But when I came across this little excerpt from a documentary—which certainly gives the impression that this is a real instance of the experiment (though, of course, it might all be acting for the sake of the programme)—I was reminded of the experiment's importance for many of the things we talk about here at TMR. People—and, yes, I know that includes me and you (but at least we're aware of this, and hopefully self-critical enough to examine ourselves from time to time)—are manipulable, and manipulators know that.
