Summarize Asch’s Research on Conformity: Conformity is something that effects all of us. Changing behaviors to match someone else. Asch used a comparison line test Confederates were people in on the experiment Confederates gave a false answer The true subjects changed their answer to cave into the conformity 1/3 of people did this ^ If someone agrees with you, you are much less likely to conform Describe Major Compliance Techniques: Foot in the door: Visualize this Start by asking a small request, followed by a larger request. Ask for 5$, then asking for $50 Door in the face technique: Start with a larger request. Ask for $1000, when you get turned down ask for $50 Low Ball Technique: Agree to something and becomes less desirable as details change That’s not all Technique: By giving you this “free” stuff. Summarize Milgram’s Research on Obedience: Changing your behavior because of an authority figure. Obey bosses, parents, law enforcement. For your original post, describe a time when you successfully used one (and only one) of the compliance techniques. For your response post, describe how a classmate could have used each of the remaining compliance techniques to achieve the same goal.
