Stanford Prison Experiment

People were categorized into prisoner/detainee and faked a setting of a real prison to see the psychological transformations that would happen to these "normal" people.  The results are pretty interesting and it's scary to think that people are so susceptible to their environment: proclaimed pacifist men who were playing the guards ended up enjoying beating some of the "prisoners."
