The Lunch Social Experiment (Not Your Mom's Social Experiment)

In this experiment performed by the Social Psychology class of 2017 Term 1, students were studying social norms, expectations, and stereotypes. Instructor Calvin told them to try breaking these unspoken rules for themselves and study the responses of other Tipsters. Examples of breaking social norms included, but were not limited to: awkward eye contact, physical contact, making small talk with deep personal questions, eating on the floor, wearing glasses upside down, ordering food in French, singing loudly, yelling at people, asking people to hold people, and stroking people's hair and face. Overall, this experiment was very successful and gave the class a lot of hands-on experience with social psychology, and the psychology of TiP students. (One student would like to add that this experiment was a slight failure because of the reputation of this class and the unflappable nature of Tipsters. Not far into the meal, students would ask the experimenters if they were in Social Psychology, and failure to answer would only confirm this.)

The 2017 Term 1 class of Social Psychology decided to play the well-known game of Assassin to unite the group when they were not in the classroom. The class debated on the rules and regulations for their version of Assassin and decided that the game could only be played during free time, or while waiting to depart to class for the day. There were, in the original draft played in rounds one and two, two safeguards that could be used to prevent an assassination.

1. Placing your finger on your nose.

2. Performing a ninja pose.

Later it was found that the 'ninja pose' was too ambiguous of a term, and that it was too difficult to distinguish between regular arm placement, and was thus removed from the final two rounds.

Round 1 Winner: Carly

Round 2 Winner: Kylee

Round 3 Winner: Jamila
