Rubbish on the streets makes people think in stereotypes and can even lead to discrimination. This is because in an untidy environment people have a greater need for structure, state the behavioural scientists Diederik Stapel of Tilburg University and Siegwart Lindenberg of the University of Groningen, both members of the Tilburg Institute for Behavioral Economics Research (TIBER). The professors demonstrated this in a series of experiments, the results of which were published on 8 April in the scientific journal Science.
