With the help of Niklas Curle
If Sebastian walked around uptown on crutches people would treat him differently. More specifically, they would give me looks, and they would be more generous and would be willing to pick up stuff that I dropped and would hold doors open for me.
The materials we used were, crutches, camera, notebook, pen.
We conducted the experiment in Uptown Minneapolis over the weekend.
Our plan for collecting data was to walk around Uptown normally, see how many people would give Sebastian weird looks, hold open doors for him, and willingly pick stuff up for him. Then do it with him on crutches.
We will compare the data we collected when Sebastian was on crutches to the data when he was not on crutches.
The subjects of our experiment were mainly Sebastian Malewicz. The other subjects, and the people who gave us the reactions that we recorded were pedestrians.
We understand that people for some reason might take offence to Sebastian pretending to be injured. However, they never found out that I was not injured. What they don’t know won’t hurt them.
