  • Doing what you think the experimenter wants, or not doing what they want
  • A set of rules that psychologists must follow to ensure the safety of subjects and the reputation of the profession
  • Results of experiment are biased because the experimenters' expectancies regarding performance of the participants on a particular task create an implicit demand for the participants to perform as expected
