The Asch #conformity #experiments or the Asch Paradigm refers to a series of studies directed by Solomon Asch studying if and how individuals yielded to or defied a majority group and the effect of such influences on beliefs and opinions:
Only 5 percent of participants were always swayed by the crowd. 25 percent of the sample consistently defied majority opinion, with the rest conforming on some trials.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asch_conformity_experiments
Both dog and cat currently at vet getting their gonads removed. There was a lot of pressure to do it - esp from other dog owners - but I had read up a lot of counter-arguments, mostly from Scandinavian countries (in Norway it's illegal to neuter dogs). This was why I sat on the fence about it for 5 years.
But since the dog's aggression towards other dogs was getting worse, and since we had already arranged to get his kitten bro's balls removed, better at the same time... https://social.coop/media/-JGeSaWW2xTUTatanM4
Hey @Antanicus :) @mayel and I have begun planning how to collect resources for HAHA Academy! Wanted to know your thoughts about the range of questions we've come up with so far!

The last question is a first stab in the dark as to how to gather info to create dependencies between the topics. I've seen it done well within textbooks (like in the image below), but want to create more of a cross-category dependency system 🍎 🤓 https://social.coop/media/ZP6qO_4eAVakHm2FbW4
