#17 from Pixar’s Emma Coats tweet revealing 22 Rules of Storytelling

While in college, I participated in several psychological experiments for different researchers. I may have been in a test involving this game strategy. It’s been about 50 years ago, and I am still thinking about it. I wish I could reread the rules so I could evaluate what I thought at the time was “correct.” I did “win” against a young male student. He was so angry (did my being a girl play into his reaction? ummmm). In my mind, the way I played gave both of us the most pay we could have hoped to have earned. I tried a couple of times to show him how he was doing the rounds, which was costing us both by changing my answer – when he didn’t get the hints, I just went the way that could do the best for me and gave him a chance to do as well as he could possibly do. Was this a Tit for Tat experiment? The same university and the right time frame!
