4. tell them to continue. Even though
Milgram showed that manypeople obey an authority figure. Within Milgram’s research, the participant whois a teacher read pairs of words to a learner who was seated in a room whilebeing connected to a shock generator. The teacher could hear the learner butwasn’t able to see them. If the learner got an incorrect word pair, the teacherwould be told to shock the learner by using a switch that was located on theshock generator. The shock generator would increase if there was a steadyincrease of incorrect word pairs. Usually, the learner would scream and want tobe released. On the other hand, if the teacher wanted the experiment to stop,the experimenter that is in the same room as them would tell them to continue.Even though there were complaints of heart pain, screams, and suddentermination of all noise that was then followed by a high voltage shock, apercentage of 62 teachers were continuing to obey the experimenter andadministered the strongest shock when under investigation.
During Milgram’sstudy, the participants weren’t threatened by any harsh punishment such asdeath if they didn’t obey the experimenter. Looking at the real world, atrocitiesbeing directed by an authority, committed by a group of people and not by onlyone person usually have a tendency to forget about their personal moral valuesand be brushed up with the views of the group, or deindividuation. People alsodon’t may not feel responsible for their own actions because those actions weredone by the entire group and not themselves, or diffusion of responsibility. Forprejudice an example would be that anti-Semitism was all throughout Europebefore the Nazis were in power and led to Jewish people being negatively lookedupon and discriminated against. The reason to this was because Jewish peoplewere not part of the group. 5.
