Monday, March 14, 2016 Chapter 9 Prosocial behavior and obedience Nuremburg trials were recorded and put on television during WW2 time. Germans were exterminating millions of innocent people.  Nuremburg Trials after WW2  “Character flaw” explanation  Stanley Milgram’s cross-cultural study  Started in US to test how people react to authority  Milgram’s procedure  “how punishment affects learning”  Participants were assigned to be the “teacher” and instructed to shock the “learner” who was in another room when they answered a question wrong. The shocks increased in severity. The teacher does not know until the very end that the learner is not actually receiving the shocks.  Procedure was fixed so that the participant was always the teacher.  Procedure was fixed so that a confederate was always the learner.  Participants who stopped at each thought to be administered volt level  Shock Level (v) = 300  Number of people who stopped = 5  Percent = 12.5%  Shock Level (v) =315  Number of people who stopped = 4  Percent = 10%  Shock Level (v) = 330  Number of people who stopped = 2  Percent = 5%  Shock Level (v) = 345  Number of people who stopped = 1  Percent = 2.5%  Shock Level (v) = 360  Number of people who stopped = 1  Percent = 2.5%  Shock Level (v) = 375  Number of people who stopped = 1  Percent = 2.5%  Shock Level (v) = 450  Number of people wo stopped = 26  Percent = 65%  In the video of the Nuremburg trials, we saw two men who immediately defied authority after the “learner” explicitly said to stop. Then we saw a man who took it all the way to 450 v, although clearly disturbed and upset. This last man was not the exception, however, he was the rule. Wednesday, March, 16, 2016  Stanley Milgram  “Obedience is as basic an element in the structure of social life as one can point to. Some system of authority is necessary for communal living.”  The experimenter’s script  Please continue  The experiment requires that you continue  It is absolutely essential that you continue  You have no choice, you must go  Read in order upon refusal. Repeat the last line upon refusal a couple of times, then stop, as the “teacher” has definitely defied authority.  Our perception of the “teacher”  Fundamental Attribution Error  Seeing other’s behavior as due to their personality.  The guy who didn’t stop was the norm; most people will hesitate, but ultimately will continue to administer shocks to the other participant.  The guys who defied authority were the exception; their behavior was abnormal compared to the other particpants.  Personal Characteristics  Fewer gender differences  No political affiliation differences  Fewer personality differences  Assessing Milgram’s Results  Few people obeyed blindly; nobody enjoyed it.  This was an unfamiliar situation; we look to others for information, especially with time pressure.
