Four Boxes

The following article has nothing to do with MMORPGs. I had read about a game theory problem online and wanted to replicate the results with a larger sample (although I felt it was more of a psychological problem than a game theory problem). Respondents were shown the following:

Sam is going to hide $100 in 1 of 4 boxes, as seen below. After Sam has hidden the money, Pat has one chance to guess where the money is hidden. If Pat guesses correctly, Pat will get the money, otherwise Sam gets the money.

Each respondent was randomly assigned into two conditions:

1) If you were Sam, where would you hide the money?
2) If you were Pat, where would you look for the money?

Respondents were also asked to briefly explain their reasoning behind their choice using the abbreviations A1, B, A2, and A3 in their explanations.

Before going on to see the results and the reasoning that respondents gave for their choice, you may want to think for a moment as to where you would have hidden or looked for the money.
