Chapter 14 Milgram Experiment Conformity versus Obedience Summary

Chapter 14 Milgram Experiment

For this assignment watch the two videos about the Milgram Experiment. You may also wish to read about the study in your textbook. Contrast the typical human explanation for people’s reactions to “conformity” versus “obedience” as types of social influence. People often deny or fail to recognize their conforming behaviors. However, with obedience (especially Milgram’s version), they consciously yield personal control of their behaviors to an allegedly higher authority: “I was only following orders.” Summarize the Milgram Experiment. Discuss your thoughts about the Milgram experiment. Why do you think participants obeyed?
