Question Answer
INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES Rosenhan (1973) Sane in an insane place Aim: Test that the classification system used by psychiatrists to diagnose whether someone is sane or insane is not reliable.
Two studies were carried out but study 1 was the most important. The pp's in study 1 were NOT THE PSEUDO PATIENTS! They were the staff of the hospitals. The pseudo patients were 5 men and 3 women with various different occupations who used fake names and occupations to sought admission into 12 hospitals across the USA.

Study 2: Hospitals were informed that pseudo patients were to be sent to their hospital. Rosenhan asked the staff to rate every patient admitted how likely it was that they were a pseudo patient. In reality, no pseudo patients were sent.
