Find out about unexpected outcomes of social experiments

8. What can unite people of different minds?

Plan: 3 pairs of strangers are going to a warehouse. They interact, following the instructions of building some construction and asking each other questions, invented by the organizers. At the end of the experiment each participant learns that his work-fellow is his ideological opponent. Each of them decides whether they are ready to get to know more about the partner while further conversation or over a bottle of beer. This experiment was a part of Heineken advertising company.

Result: 3 pairs participated in the experiment - supporter and antagonist of global warming idea. A feminist woman and a man of conservative mind, transgender and a man, speaking against gender reassignment. Despite drastically opposite opinions and uncomplying attitude to people with different opinion, in the end, all participants remained to get to know better their partner and learn more about another point of view.
