Lab #1

Part One: List of Events

  1. News: Women pay more for everything (Dec. 2015 study)
  2. News: Martin Shkreli Drug Price Increases
  3. Personal: Guys flirting with strangers on metro at night
  4. Personal: Ignoring drunk and helpless homeless woman on metro
  5. Personal: Seeing family members get sick

Part Two: Your Emotions

  1. Women pay more for everything: frustration, anger, sadness, powerlessness, discouragement
  2. Ignoring homeless woman (thinking back): sadness, shame, guilt, embarrassment, thankfulness

Part Three: Questions

 

  1. Women pay more for everything: Why do these findings come as a surprise? Why does this make me feel powerless? Why did I feel sad?
  2. Ignoring homeless woman: Why did I feel guilty for not caring? Why do we stop ourselves from feeling emotions towards homeless people? Why didn’t I try to help?

Part Four: Research
