003 The Orchard Test

Here's a quick filler. in between blogs, for those who are not so interested in bad jokes about ME teachers.

This excerpt from a short paper i wrote for fun,(not for General Paper, thankfully) on a study of human behaviour and all the other funny things humans think about. I present to you, the Orchard Test, named after Orchard Road, Singapore, a place to shop, watch movies, just hanging around, making a fool out of yourself by singing to lamp posts, and as demonstrated by this experiment, understanding human behaviour. Here goes..

...he wanted to understand the spontaneous reactions of human beings in different situation, such as in this example he had given:

We take a walk on Orchard Road one fine day, which of course will be full of somewhat pretty women and girls. Now, we would try a pickup line on a randomly selected female and judge their response to it. Is it of disgust, shock, happiness, or ignorance? Results will be compiled statistically and in depth analysis will be done to draw a conclusion on which is the best pick up line.

Of course, such ideas would be, shall we say, hard to accomplish unless we can find a male intrepid enough to go up to about a hundred strangers, saying the same thing and enduring whatever happens after that. And of course, biasness is present because we are doing this to women we do not know...

have you ever tried the test? or is it you that verified it? however interesting it may seem it is quite unlikely that in reality it will work....
