Storyboard Text

  • Qualitative data was collected by recording comments and observing body language; most of the participants displayed signs of deep distress and tension through groaning, sweating and stuttering, while 14 giggled nervously (they all said they laughed through nerves and they weren't sadists who enjoyed giving pain). One man even had a severe seizure and the experiment was discontinued.
  • There were two main conclusions concocted by Milgram; 1. People are more obedient to destructive orders than what we might predict/expect and initially, the participants were willing to obey the destructive orders 2. Receiving/obeying destructive orders was found to be stressful but the participants obeyed despite their emotional responses. This is due to an internal conflict which is triggered between two deeply ingrained tendencies - to obey those in authority and not to harm other people
  • Overall the Milgram experiment was mostly unethical - although had some ethical factors, had a very low ecological validity and was not entirely internally valid. It also lacked in the sampling bias and ethnocentrism. (ALL EXPLAINED PREVIOUSLY)
