A school teacher did an experiment with her kindergarten class. She placed three boxes at the front of the room. All three boxes had something in them.
The first box was wrapped with Christmas gift paper and had a blank paper in it. The second box was wrapped with birthday party paper and had five dollars in it. The third box was plain brown and had ten dollars inside.
The teacher set the boxes up in front of the class and told all thirty of her students to line up in front of the box they wanted. Sixteen children lined up in front of the biggest box with the Christmas gift paper wrapping. Thirteen children lined up in front of the middle box with the birthday party gift wrapping. And only one shy child lined up in front of the plain brown box.
