Storyboard Text

  • confederate
  • The 40 participants in the experimental group were always given the role of teacher (through a fixed lottery) and saw the learner (a confederate) strapped into a chair with (non-active) electrodes attached to his arms. They were given a trial shock of 40 volts to simulate genuineness
  • Teacher
  • The ‘teacher’ then sat in front of an electric shock generator in an adjacent room. He had to conduct a paired word test on the learner and give him an electric shock of increasing intensity for every wrong answer. The machine had 30 switches ranging from 15-450 volts, in 15 volt increments
  • The ‘learner’ produced (via a tape recording) a set of predetermined responses, giving approximately 3 wrong answers to every correct one. At 300 volts he pounded on the wall and thereafter made no further replies. •
  • pow
  • The study finished when either the ‘teacher’ refused to continue (was disobedient) or reached 450 volts (was obedient).The participant was then fully debriefed.
  • I cant go on !!!!!
  • Data was gathered through observations made by both the experimenter who was in the same room as the participant and others who observed the process through one-way mirrors. Most sessions were recorded on magnetic tape, occasional photographs were taken through the one-way mirrors and notes were made on unusual behaviours.
