Prisoner's Dilemma

Love - Sorry

Does love really mean never having to say you’re sorry? Or is saying you’re sorry not even enough? Results of a recent study of conflict resolution conducted in the Netherlands might surprise you and is sure to create more questions. Participants were engaged in a gaming situation on the order of Prisoner’s Dilemma, but carried out on the computer—where they thought they were “playing” with (or against) a human partner. Actually, the “other” player’s actions were pre-established and automated.
