  • Burger (2009): Replicating Milgram
  • Aim: To investigate obedience by partially replicating Milgram's study to examine whether situational factors affect obedience to an authority figure.
  • We promised $50 for taking part in two 45 minute sessions. Once people had shown interest, they were contacted via phone to begin the screening procedure.
  • People responded to advertisements in the local newspaper, the library and online.
  • Participants were asked if they had been to university, and if they said yes then asked if they took psychology lessons. This is to see who would have been aware of Milgram's study.
  • The remaining participants were asked about their health (both physically and mentally) and whether they had suffered any sort of trauma during childhood. More participants were excluded after this.
  • The second screening process was led by two clinical psychologists at Santa Clara University. This required the participants to complete a number of questionnaires asking about age, ethnicity, occupation etc.
  • Participants were then interviewed by a clinical psychologist to see who might be negatively affected by the study. The interview was based around the MINI procedure. Even more participants were excluded and the reasons for this are unknown due to confidentiality agreements.
  • The final sample was 29 males and 41 females, with an age range of 20-81.
