    I read recently of an experiment that took place in 1970. Two psychologists from Princeton University gathered a group of seminary students and told them that they were to give a brief message to a group of their professors.

    Some of the students were given adequate time to prepare and adequate time to get across campus. Others were not. The ones who were not were told that they were already running late. This group was given only a few minutes to put together a talk and to get to where they were to deliver their message.
