In this exercise, I will be going to a retail store to give away free money. I am going to approach different types of people no matter the gender, age or ethnicity. My approach to starting the conversation is to greet the persons and give them the dollar. I am honestly very nervous to walk up to people, and give them a dollar. My plan for the conversation is go the generous route where I explain that I feel generous that day and then give the dollar. I think I can give away all five dollars. People don’t seem to be too snobbish at Walmart to deny a dollar.
Here are the two videos I recorded:
I was able to give most of the five people my dollar. Giving away the dollar was more difficult than I initially thought it was going to be. My predictions were a bit inaccurate because I thought I would be able to give away all the dollars, but I wasn’t able to give away all in five trials. I think some people didn’t want to accept the dollar because they weren’t sure if it was a scam, or probably they didn’t like the idea of taking money from others. I didn’t really make any assumptions about the people I was going to interview. I simply went up to them and started talking. I enjoyed this experience. The people who accepted the dollar was very thankful, and pleased to receive it. They even wished me a good luck with school.
