【心理學101】從迫男童變性到Facebook X Cambridge Analytica醜聞:人類總要重複同樣的錯誤

可憐的 little Albert 被 conditioned 至害怕所有毛毛物件 :(

這陣子和當年讀研院的同學閒聊,很自然就會談到Facebook和Cambridge Analytica:除了這事可能會成為心理學研究操守的教材,更主要是因為Cambridge Analytica的首腦,那位劍橋大學心理學系講師,是我們的同學/師兄。

聽到「師兄」在BBC的採訪只稱自己被當成代罪羔羊,不斷迴避記者問題,又說別人告訴他轉交數據合法,雖然自己應該先想想這樣做有沒有操守問題云云,我們都感到憤怒、無奈及少少幸運:雖然劍橋大學已經跟Cambridge Analytica劃清界線,但她能否逃過好像史丹福大學般「名留青史」的命運仍是未知之數⋯⋯
