I made a film based on my belief that the inhumane obedience of Nazi Germans could be explained by the fact that Germans by disposition are more obedient than other cultures or religions. I wish to first investigate Germans however I will run a pilot study.
We will be administering electric shocks to the participants not to see how punishment affects learning but to see the power of a legitimate authority even when a command requires destructive behaviour.
It seems that all of the participants got the part of the teacher therefore I have speculations of this being a fake observation.
The results were unexpected as they were all Americans tested as 65% of participants went up to the maximum voltage 450. This didn't match my hypothesis at all.
I feel very positive about the experience as I have learned something of importance from taking part.
