4th ESO - Going Ape (i)

We all know that we are closely connected to apes. However we are not usually aware of how strong the connection is. You will watch a simple experiment that tests if humans are hard-wired to do something irrational just to fit in. This is called Norm Conform and I took it from the National Geographic Channel.


Did you watch it? If so, you are ready to post a comment in the blog. Your texts must answer these questions:

Were you surprised when you watched the video? Why?
Do you remember any experience of yours in which you said hm, we're just like monkeys?

Your post must have been sent by October 28th 2013.

  1. Really amazing how much primitives can be the humans! I remember when one of my little brothers took something, and the other one, wanted that thing just because his brother had it.

  4. When I watch the video I don't surprise because in my opinion the humans are repetition monkeys. Men and women do the same things that we do. For example, the young people wear the same clothes. Maybe we're afraid to be different.

  5. It's surprising how the humans and monkeys are similar. I remember one day when my cousin was little, he tried to open a box hitting it like a monkey and my aunt tried to help him, but he didn't want help.

  6. I'm not surprised with this video because I think that we are like monkeys, we go in the same way as everyone, because we don't want to be excluded. I remember many experiences with my sister, but most of them were when she was doing something and I would imitate it, and I'm still doing it.

  7. It's incredible the likeness between the humans and this kind of monkeys. It's very interesting study the human's behaviour. This video remembers to me when my little sister was young and she wanted everything that I had. It's one of many things that we have in common with the simians.

  9. I was surprised when I see that there's no a lot of difference between the humans and the monkeys. It has made me remember when I was a kid I did the same, when someone did something I wanted to do the same.

  10. I was surprised when I watched the video because the presenter compares the way who make the things the primates with the conduct of the humans. He compares the way the primates to please the group doing the same that them and their way of surviving conduct.

  11. The results for this experiment demostrate once more that humans are very similar to chimps and a primates in general. I was very surprised when I view this video because I no expect to nothing this reaction in all the humans that enter in elevator. Very cool and curious!

  14. I'm surprised how people are guided by the group like animals. The people that were being watched, didn't think? We are very similar to monkeys, but only when we are in group, but it happens because we afraid to be different and that the other people laugh.

  15. As much as we like to deny it, the truth is that the humans are very similar to animals. Is very funny how the people (clearly confused) turn around like others. Also, we can see how the people have fear of be different of others.
    I think that our animal instincts will last forever.

  16. That’s incredible how we compare with other animals like the monkeys. The behaviors of the monkeys are more similar than the conduct of the humans, because when monkeys do something. The rest of the groups do the same.
    In this way we can appreciate that the humans' conduct is exactly equal, because we act with the same form.

  21. Beautiful video, but it's very usual. I admit thats thats it's very funny coincidence among humans and monkeys.
    I think humans and monkeys act is very similar , because they share almost identical DNA specially with the champanzes.
    For exemple when I'm speaking or doing something my little brother tries to do similar thing. He always begs me papers and coloures pencils when'm drawing some draught of visual and plastic education.
    These operations are just fatuousness that we makes us resemblance them.

  24. I was surprised when I watched this video, because the people does the same accions that others. It reminds me this situation when I observe the people and many people are wearing the same clothes.

  25. Well, I wasn't surprised about the video, because I think that it's pretty clear that there isn't something between monkeys and humans... Just some hair separates us. We are equal, in matter of brain, and that is simply, terrifying.

    Something that always remember me how similar humans and monkeys are, it's the groups in our high school, for example. Just look in the class and you can identify without troubles one or two group of monkeys. Like a packs. If one say something, the other will repeat it. If one walk, the other will follow. And that is the great intelligence that we, the teenagers, have.

  29. The video I found very interesting because it shows that humans act like animals, when you do something that everyone is compelled to do so. Today this cast can be applied to almost all aspects of life such fashion: if a group of people start to dress in a way most do the same.
