This storyboard does not have a description.
the teacher asked the learner questions, every time they gave a wrong answer, a shock was given to the learner by the teacher, increasing by 15V each time from 15V- 450V, the whole process was recorded
up to 300V the learner gave no response to the pain- but at 300V and 315V they pounded on the wall. the learner was not really being shocked and these responses were pre-recorded tapes being played
after 315V the learner made no noise and answered no questions, to appear hurt, unconscious or dead. the conductor urged the teacher to carry on giving shocks, counting silence as a wrong answer
the experiment ended for each participant when they refused to continue, or reached the full 450V. 100% gave 300V or more, and 65% gave the full 450V shock
participants showed signs of destress during the experiment, such as sweating, stuttering, groaning and lip biting. 14 teachers giggled nervously and 1 had a severe seizure.
the experiment drew 2 conclusions: 1) people are more obedient to destructive orders than expected by psychology students- most people are willing to obey 2) people find receiving destructive orders highly stressful but obey despite emotional responses
