THE STORY: “Some people suffer from phobias. This particular group, comprised mostly of children, were deathly afraid of…rabbits. Fuzzy, wuzzy, cute lil’ cottontailed bunnies, of all things. Fear of Bunnies–known clinically as “Laporitphobia” is no small hurdle to leap! This is a group photograph of kids whom famed psychologist, John B. Watson, successfully managed to condition responses of most frightful apprehensions of bunny rabbits. Here is an example of one of the many attempts his youthful subjects were forced to endure, as Watson tried to undo the fear he instilled. While some of the children did manage to recover, at least four of the kids died from self-poisoning. It is rumored the last words of one dying subject (whose first name was Elmer, “test subject number three”) was, “Kill The Rabbit!” _______________________________________________________________________ Pinned by friend Eleanor T. …Thanks!
