  26. 26. A group of scientists placed 5 monkeys in a cage and in the middle, a ladder with bananas on the top
  27. 27. Every time a monkey went up the ladder, thescientists soaked the rest of the monkeys with cold water
  28. 28. After a while, every time a monkey went upthe ladder, the others beat up the one on the ladder
  29. 29. After some time, no monkey dare to go up the ladder regardless of the temptation
  30. 30. Scientists then decided to substitute one ofthe monkeys. The 1st thing this new monkeydid was to go up the ladder. Immediately the other monkeys beat him up After several beatings, the new member learned not to climb the ladder even though never knew why
  31. 31. A 2nd monkey was substituted and the same occurred.The 1st monkey participated on the beating for the 2nd monkey. A 3rd monkey was changed and the same was repeated(beating). The 4th was substituted and the beating was repeated and finally the 5th monkey was replaced
  32. 32. What was left was a group of 5 monkeys that even though never received a cold shower, continued to beat up any monkey who attempted to climb the ladder
  33. 33. If it was possible to ask the monkeys why they would beat up all those who attempted to go up the ladder….. I bet you the answer would be…. “I don’t know – that’s how things are done around here” Does it sounds familiar?
