Classic Studies in Irrational Behaviour

Jeremy Dean over at PsyBlog has collected a wonderful series of 10 posts on “Why We do Dumb or Irrational Things” with lucid summaries of ten classic social psychology experiments (including Milgram, Festinger and Sharif) and links to the original research. For those of us who often plan as though human social groups think and behave logically, a salutary reminder. Thanks to Dale Arsenault for alerting me to this.
