Study Finds People Would Rather Shock Themselves Than Do Nothing - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

Some people would rather get an electric shock than be left alone to sit and think for a few minutes according to the results of a study by researchers at the University of Virginia. Subjects were directed to sit alone in a room, and they reportedly didn’t enjoy doing nothing, and preferred giving themselves an electric shock from a 9-volt battery, even though they were told it would hurt them if they touched it.
