Psychology and Sociology: Trust exercises.

In class we have been dealing with the topic of emotional intelligence, and we have prepared for you a couple of videos, which show two experiences that we have performed on the trust emotion.

In the first experience, students let themselves fall backwards and are held by classmates who prevent them of hitting the floor.

In the second experience, some of the students walk around with their eyes closed. Their classmates stay quiet and are expected to guide them only by touching them gently in case they pass near them, so that they help the blind wanderers not to run into obstacles such as pieces of furniture or the walls of the classroom.

Once the experience was over, the students who took part in it were requested to share their feelings during the activity. It was both illustrative and funny!
