They did that one on Mythbusters and their results agree with you.

ETA: Oh, yes and their main experiment was to test whether people would change their selection or stick with their first instinct. They found that most people will stick with their first choice.

I've never heard of this problem before the Mythbusters episode, and until reading a few posts here I didn't get why changing was a good idea. It suddenly hit me why and I feel dumb for not having seen it all along because it's pretty obvious.
