Why did that happen?
The woman was the same in both conditions. The answer, according to Dutton and Aron and tons of later researchers who have tested this phenomenon in other waysis the misattribution of arousal.
Your heartbeat increases, your blood pressure goes up, and you start sweating. So the researchers argued that, because we experience these physiological symptoms of arousal in several different settings, sometimes our cognitive interpretation of the symptoms can be incorrect. You might be scared or anxious and mistakenly interpret the signs as being attracted to someone who happens to be around.
For the men on the shaky bridge, they thought they were attracted to the female experimenter — so they called her; this happened significantly more times than the men on the safe bridge who were looking at the exact same woman.
Anxiety and Arousal So, back to the main point: Peeta and Katniss are certainly in a scary environment. They are both wounded; they could die at any moment. Adrenaline is pumping through them. According to misattribution of arousal, this physiological arousal could be mistaken for sexual arousal. Peeta and Katniss will fall in love. Katniss is constantly around Peeta in times of physical stress.

The Hunger Games is like a shaky bridge, made a zillion times worse. This analysis is based off of reading the trilogy and watching the movies. This is your spoiler alert. Gale is Katniss' friend and comrade. While he is not necessarily Katniss' confidant, Katniss can be herself with Gale and has fewer reservations with him than she does with others.
Gale is active, angry at the Capitol, outspoken, action-taking, and wants to fight for the future that could be.
While Gale hunts to provide for his family and himself, he is not accepting of the current world and of the conditions in which they live. Gale and Katniss are both from District 12 and come from similar backgrounds in their struggle to survive and provide for their families. For the most part, Gale and Katniss have an equal relationship where they are both equals in the woods, equal providers for their families, and can build upon and contribute to each others' strengths.
Gale and Katniss get along and understand each other, but Gale is more vocal and angry than Katniss in his opposition to the way in which they live. Gale hints at a future life, both personal and in rebellion, but Katniss is not receptive to either.
It is not until the third book, that Katniss considers being what Gale wants and being active in the rebellion in a way that she thinks will be agreeable to Gale. This is not so much something Katniss wants so much as a compromise that Katniss is willing to make in order to be with Gale. As the rebellion progresses, Katniss and Gale grow farther apart, both in their personal relationship and in their roles in the rebellion.
Katniss and Gale are best friends and could have potentially built a future together; and had the Hunger Games not happened, they probably would have. But long before the rebellion, it is clear that Gale is not necessarily a match for Katniss despite their similar backgrounds and friendship.
The Hunger Games: A Romantic Analysis of the Peeta vs Gale "Love Triangle" | HobbyLark
Peeta Mellark and Katniss Everdeen We come to know Peeta and his role in the love triangle as Katniss comes to know of Peeta's feelings for her. As such, we follow the journey with the same confusion and uncertainty that Katniss experiences only later to find more clarity in Peeta's actions and motivations. Peeta is sweet, sensitive, smooth-talking, and steadfast.
He knows that he may not be able to change the world but he hopes for a future in the world that exists.
Peeta is from District 12 but he is part of a slightly "higher class" or higher group in District Peeta is the son of a baker and while Peeta is not necessarily rich, he does not go hungry and does not have to struggle in the way that Katniss and Gale do to provide food for themselves and for their families.
This is the first place where we see that Peeta's and Katniss' relationship is one that starts on inequality. Later, Peeta deliberately burns bread so that it is unsellable and so that he is able to give it to Katniss when he sees her starving outside. While Peeta does this out of concern and care for Katniss, it is an act that Katniss does not understand and that Katniss is unable to repay.
Throughout the games, Peeta protects Katniss and looks out for her in ways that she is not able to repay. While Peeta does these things because he cares for Katniss and for other reasons as wellit places Katniss in an uncomfortable position because she "owes" Peeta, regardless of the source of his actions.
The lines become more blurry and the rules more complicated as Katniss has to reciprocate feelings or at least, feign reciprocal feelings for Peeta and as it becomes harder for Katniss to separate what is real and what is not real with regards to how she feels for Peeta and for what is starting to develop in their relationship. Katniss recognizes that she has to separate out her feelings regarding Peeta, but in the books she is never allowed the opportunity to do so.
What I did as part of the Games. As opposed to what I did out of anger at the Capitol. Or because of how it would be viewed back in District Or simply because it was the only decent thing to do.
Or what I did because I cared about him. These are questions to be unraveled back home, in the peace and quiet of the woods, when no one is watching. Not here with every eye upon me. But I won't have that luxury for who knows how long. While Peeta is not necessarily a match for Katniss and while the ending of their relationship is not well-developed, it does show that Katniss and Peeta come to be on common enough ground in which to build a relationship on.
The Hunger Games "Love Triangle: I have chosen Gale and the rebellion. A future with Peeta is the Capitol's design, not mine. Her feelings towards each of them are complicated but her feelings are complicated in general because of everything she has been through, how she has been used, and who she is as a person.
Katniss cares for Gale and comes to awaken to her feelings. She risks punishment and her life to stop him from continuing to be whipped. She indirectly lets Peeta know that she cares for Gale and Katniss' actions support her attachment to Gale but being with Gale presents problems for Katniss.
She wants to be with Gale but she also cares for Peeta. There is also the fact that Katniss is no longer the Katniss she was before the Games and her current self is weakened, damaged, vulnerable, depressed, and unstable. Even before the Games, there were differences in the way in which she viewed the world and in the way Gale viewed the world.
She wants to be with Gale but being with Gale requires her to change, even if she cannot revert to her former self she still has to change to a self other than what she is. Katniss is aware of this and this is indicated by her preliminary choice where she states "I have chosen Gale and the rebellion. This means Katniss is considering becoming someone other than who she is and doing something she does not want to do to be with Gale because she cares for Gale.
This statement is also worth noting because it reveals an important aspect of how Katniss feels towards Peeta.

Her feelings for him developed when she was being controlled by the Capitol, when she was in the Games, when she was emotionally and mentally unstable, and while she was being manipulated by Peeta. But she has developed feelings for Peeta and a need for him as the beginning of her statement was "I wish Peeta were here to hold me, until I remember I'm not supposed to wish that anymore.
I have chosen Gale. Peeta provides her with safety and security in the world that she now knows and has seen, and to the person she is now while Gale provided it in the world she knew and to the person she used to be but based on the quote, Katniss has trouble reconciling this reality. Katniss has trouble reconciling this reality up until the very end in which she still hopes to find Gale and to rekindle romance in their former meeting place in the woods.
She initially wants to pursue her feelings for Gale because that is who she wants to be with even if it means that she has to change into someone who she is not.
But her feelings and interactions with Peeta are complicated throughout Mockingjay. She gets involved in the rebellion not only because she cares for him or has feelings for him, but because she feels she has to save him.
Once Peeta is back in the picture, Katniss appears to be cold towards Peeta but it is because while she cares for Peeta, she does not necessarily want to be with him, does not want to be with him at that time and needs space, or has unresolved issues with Peeta and needs to work through them. This presents another prison for Katniss as not wanting to be with Peeta is reproached against her because of all that Peeta has done for her and because of all that he has gone through.
On top of that, Peeta is no longer who he was, and no longer sees her as he once did. He sees her as a monster and tries to kill her. He is both a physical danger and psychological influence to her as on top of trying to kill her, he lowers her mental health by causing her to make decisions and judgments based on the guilt she feels instead of what she wants and needs and by making her feel low and lower than she already feels at various parts in Mockingjay.
Peeta's impact on Katniss' mental state is highlighted where Katniss expresses "All those months of taking for granted that Peeta thought I was wonderful are over. Finally, he can see me for who I really am. And I hate him for it.
Peeta makes her feel bad about herself and makes her feel guilty, and Peeta's return did not entirely mean a romantic rekindling for Katniss. She tries to deal with her conflicting emotions for Peeta and for her situation with him by avoiding him, and when she cannot avoid him her encounters with him are filled with hostility. But she is not allowed to deal with her conflicting emotions without having more guilt placed on her plate.
Now, I'm not saying you shouldn't have a fully loaded weapon next to you round the clock.
