Which high school students are more willing to lend money to strangers: students in Seoul, Korea or students in Normal, Illinois?

  • Tentative Hypothesis: strangers: students in Seoul, Korea or students in Normal, Illinois?

  • We believe that high school students in Illinois will be hesitant and not give a great amount of money but students in Seoul will be greatly hesitant but give more money.

  • Why?

  • We believe so becausethe students in Korea may need more money immediately (such as public transportation) but are more trusting (as seen in the stores that have less protection and precaution) and thus lend more money. On the other hand, the students in Illinois would be hesitant since so much crime is shown in TV despite the decreasing crime rates and thus not give as much money since they believe they won’t get repaid. Many U.S teenagers use debit cards which indicates that not many people carry cash. U.S students that have jobs are more hesitant to give their hard-earned money.

Analysis
Analysis strangers: students in Seoul, Korea or students in Normal, Illinois?

  • Unexpected result

    • Exactly 14 students did not give money and 16 students gave money to the experimenter in both countries

    • However, the amount of money that was given seemed to differ greatly from the two countries.

    • Korean students gave more money than the students in Illinois as the Korean average was $12.25 and that of Illinois was $2.25


Analysis1

  • Other side results showed that males tended to be more helpful than females with a ratio of 5:3.

  • We can conclude that neither Seoul nor Normal was more altruistic or helpful than the other, but students in Seoul were willing to provide more money than students in Normal.


Analysis2
Analysis strangers: students in Seoul, Korea or students in Normal, Illinois?

  • Out hypothesis was only partially correct

    • Incorrect in assuming that Normal students would be more willing to help others since both showed surprisingly the same amount of help

    • Correct in assuming that students in Seoul would give more money to the experimenters


Analysis3
Analysis strangers: students in Seoul, Korea or students in Normal, Illinois?

  • The results seemed to contradict our literature reviews:

    • The article that concluded American culture was more altruistic due to the portrayal of helping and the role it played in American life

    • The gender results also refuted the article that women were more altruistic


Possible flaws
Possible Flaws strangers: students in Seoul, Korea or students in Normal, Illinois?

We had to change a few of our procedures due to students’ critiques

Appearance of the person could have given an impression of trustworthiness or affluence and might have affected the answer

It was inevitable for different people to conduct the experiment in different locations (female conducting experiment in a mall)

The difference in people could lead to different styles of talking and nuances while the difference in locations could lead to the different kind of students who were around there
