What are the most interesting concepts in psychology?

I have read/watched about a few studies and two stand out in my mind.

  1. The study with Little Albert. They took a baby and used loud noises and furry white animals (like a rabbit) and eventually made him fear white fluffy creatures.
  2. The prison study where, I believe they took college students and made some of them prisoners and some of them guards. The change in the personalities and the demeanor’s of everyone changed – especially over time. If I remember correctly, it had to be stopped early because it was getting out of hand.

Keeping in mind I graduated in 2007 and haven’t seen these in over 10 years, I think I got most of the basics right.
