美国小伙手持中奖彩票假扮盲人,测试穷人和富人的反应,结果扎心了......

摘要: 真扎心……


YouTube上有一个挺火的博主,名叫Johal。



Johal热衷于通过做各种社会实验测试人性。比如假装在路人面前掉落iPhone,看对方会不会把手机捡起来还给他。


这次,Johal假扮成一位盲人,拿着一张500美元的中奖彩票分别去了穷人区和富人区,让那里的路人“帮忙确认”中奖数额。Johal想知道,在面对金钱的诱惑时,穷人和富人分别是怎样反应的。


来看视频,结果让人大吃一惊:




《每日邮报》(Daily Mail)也报道了这件事:


At the start of the two-minute clip, Johal explains that he plans to walk up to homeless people and individuals in a wealthy neighborhood and ask them the same question: Did he win?

在这段两分钟的视频开头,Johal解释说,他计划分别走近流浪汉们和富人区的居民,并问他们一个相同的问题:自己中奖了吗?



Johal will be wearing sunglasses and feeling his way with a cane, convincingly playing the part of a blind man unable to see his fortune for himself.

Johal将戴着墨镜,用一根棍子摸索前进,假装自己是一位盲人,无法看见奖金。



First, he visits a "wealthier area" of town, calling out to a passing man who stops to talk to him. Johal tells the man that his mom gave him the lottery ticket in his hand and told him it was a big winner, but he wanted to confirm whether it really was. He explains to the man that he is blind, so he cant see the ticket himself.

一开始,他去了一个较为富裕的区,叫住路过的一位男士。该男子停下来和他交谈起来。他告诉男子,妈妈给了自己一张彩票,并说他中了大奖。但是Johal希望确认自己是否真的中了大奖。他解释说,自己是位盲人,所以看不见彩票。



Shockingly, the man takes the ticket from Johals hand, looks both ways, and then walks away without a word.

令人震惊的是,该男子将彩票从Johal的手中接过后,向两边看了看,然后一声不吭地就走了。




当Johal接近另一个富人区的男士时,竟发生了相同的故事。



No, its not a winner, not at all, the lying man tells him before slipping the ticket into his own pocket and adding that hes happy to get rid of it for Johal.

该男子谎称,“没有,根本没中奖。”然后把彩票悄悄放进了自己的口袋。他还说自己很乐意帮Johal丢掉它。



Johal给了他一次说实话的机会,再次向他确认中奖与否,然而得到的回答是:


"Ive looked at it twice, three times now. Not a winner." 

我都看了两三次了,真没中奖。



这时Johal才告诉他,自己其实并不是盲人。男子听了后,立马丢掉彩票,咒骂了一句,匆匆离开了。


《每日邮报》的记者问,要是这500美元真的就这样被拿走了怎么办?Johal说:


"I wasnt actually worried about the possibility of someone stealing the ticket because, while it was real, it wouldnt bring the thief any riches. The ticket I was using had already been redeemed."

“其实我并不担心别人会偷走这张彩票。尽管这张彩票是真的,但不会给小偷带去任何财富,因为彩票已经被兑换过了。”

接下来,Johal去了穷人区,向那些无家可归的流浪汉们问了同样的问题。


"My god, you won $500 on this." one homeless man in a baseball cap tells him earnestly. 

“天哪,你这张彩票中了500美元。”一个戴着棒球帽的流浪汉认真地告诉他。



终于得到了一个诚实的答复,Johal很开心。他摘下自己的墨镜, 告诉了这个男人真相,然后给了他10美元。



The few bucks are especially welcome since the man informs Johal that he hadnt eaten since breakfast the day before.

这不多的几美元让流浪汉喜出望外,他告诉Johal,昨天吃过早饭后,到现在还粒米未进。


之后Johal又去问了另外一个无家可归的女人。


When he asks her whether is ticket really is a winner, she exclaims: "Wow! Its a $500 winner."

当他询问自己的彩票是否真的中奖时,她喊道:“哇!中了500美元呢。”



Touchingly, the woman seems genuinely excited for Johal, laughing while she directs him to go cash it. Johal rewards her as well, handing her a $10 bill for being so "honest and generous".

令人动容的是,这位女士笑着让Johal赶快去兑换彩票时,能看出她真的为Johal中奖感到激动。Johal同样也给了她10美元,作为对她诚实和善良的回报。


做完实验后,Johal有点失望,他告诉《每日邮报》:


I was extremely sad from the results, seeing someone who is homeless on the streets and doesnt take my lottery ticket compared to someone who had a job - its a pretty sad thing.

“这样的结果让我十分难过,看看那些大街上无家可归的人们,他们都不愿意拿我的彩票,再比比那些有工作的人,真是太难受了。”



这位小哥还做过很多社会实验,双语君(微信ID:Chinadaily_Mobile)为大家选出另外一则。


在这个街头实验里,Johal趁一个流浪汉睡着时,偷偷塞给他100美金。


之后的剧情发展让人泪目……
