Storyboard Text

  • Although the shocks are extremely painful, they cause no permanent tissue-damage.
  • Participants were told the experiment was to investigate the effects of punishment on learning when actually it was to look at OBEDIENCE TO AUTHORITY.
  • Participants then had to select the role they'd play out of a hat but this was rigged so the participant was always the teacher.
  • They went to a room where the learner was strapped into an 'electric chair'. They watched the learner have an electrode attached to his wrist and had electrode paste applied to applied to 'avoid blisters and burns'.
  • The participant had a sample shock of 45 volts to make the shock generator seem more authentic. However, it was fake. 
  • The participant left the learner and went to the room next door. He was asked to read out word pair test. The participant could not see the learner but could hear him.
  • The participant was told to administer a shock every time the learner got an answer wrong. He had to start with a shock of 15 volts and move up in 15 volts increments for each incorrect answer.
