Pretty soon, when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.
Now, put away the cold water. Remove one monkey from the cage and
Replace it with a new monkey. The new monkey sees the banana and
Attempts to climb the stairs.
Next, remove another of the original four monkeys, replacing it with a New monkey. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The Previous newcomer takes part in the punishment – with enthusiasm – Because he is now part of the “team.”
Then, replace a third original monkey with a new monkey, followed by the

Permitted to climb the stairs.
Neither do they know why they are participating in the beating of the
Newest monkey. Having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the
Remaining monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water.
