Storyboard Text

  • 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
