A since 10 mins with extrem pain just isn´t that long.
But this question reminds me of the kind of questions a friend used to ask.

You are on an island and you have to have one of these people with you.
1: An extremly annoying person.
2: An extremly disgusting person.
3: A person that you hate, but that person loves you and thinks you do the same.
They are all useless, now make your choice. Keep in mind that you are not allowed to harm them in any way, you can´t kill youself either.

Well I have faced consequences that would make your head spin so my answer would be never..I am not afraid of consequences.

hmm I'm that kind of person who thinks things thoroughly. If I was to decide I'd firstly have a long conversation with those guys who implement this experiment. I mean if it's for my sake I'd be rather cautious. But if it's something really necessary I'd choose option A. Why? It's because I face my problems immediately and inspite of pain I'd do it.

Offtopic: I see that you're interested in psychology. I was curious whether you're familiar with movie The Wave (Die Walle in German). It's also interesting that it's dangerous to play with peoples mind . . .

I'd refuse out of spite. There's no way I'd volunteer so they'd have it easy, and also have the benefit of not dirtying their hands. If they're gonna get me then they're going to have to get dirty....really damn dirty, 'cause I fight like hell and I'm not afraid of dying.....Pain & I are also very familiar acquaintances...

If you were told that you had to come in for a test where you would be electrocuted for ten extremely painful minutes and that it couldn't be avoided because there would be consequences that would occure if you didn't do it at some point and you wouldn't be told what consequences till you got it over with but you had the choice to do it:
*****(also there would be no side effects)*****( And after ten years you would have to face unknown concequences)*****

A) Right away

B) in 2 weeks

C) in 3 months

D) in 10 years

Which would you choose and why?

It's funny that you pose this question because in every physiology class I've taken, including the labs, electrodes are used to demonstrate enervation of hand muscles. The professor touches the electrodes to the different nerves running down the inner part of the lower arm, and the corresponding fingers clench accordingly (different fingers are controlled by different nerves).

I have always been used as the guinea pig for this demonstration, because I don't feel pain the way other people do and think getting shocked is rather exciting and makes me feel alert and refreshed. It's kind of like eating wasabi, strong ginger, or very hot peppers, although none of those have ever burned me or blistered my skin.

Anyway, to answer the question, I would get shocked right away. And depending how I felt about it, later I might demand a re-test.
