what about disobedience? Who are the people that disobey or blow the whistle? Do they have specific personal characteristics that make them behave differently?
After Milgram's study about obedience, Bocchiaro with his study wanted to investigate disobedience and how people deal with an unethical and unjust request;if people prefer refuse to follow orders (disobey) or report wrongdoing to higher authorities (whistle-blowing)
Tha sampling method Bocchiaro used was a self-selected (by popsting flyers in the university cafeteria). A total of 149 University undergraduates from UV University of Amsterdam took part (96 women and 53 men)
The study took place in a laboratory at the University ofn Amsterdsam. The participant was asked to name some of their friends who would take part to a study about the effects of sensory deprivation on brain function. The participant was asked then to write an email
