Paul PiffMonopoly(Board games that trade real estate in the manner of Sugoroku) to compete each other. In that experiment one of the players stands in the advantage of the opponent in an unfair way. At this time, the opponent player does not have the chance to win the game on the basis of the rule design. When the game starts, the player who stands at the top will feel better with this fortune and will behave like a fight against the opponent. "When people are put into a more privileged and powerful role in a game, that person really will act as if there is a status, money, power," Paul Piff. Nonetheless, it does not necessarily mean that people will have this kind of money if they have money, and that being rich is a means to make it easier for people to give priority to their own selfishness rather than the interests of others. Money makes it easier for people to bring out the lowest aspects.
