The shock generator had switches labeled with different voltages, starting at 30 volts and increasing in 15-volt increments all the way up to 450 volts.
The switches were also labeled with terms which reminded the participant of how dangerous the shocks were.
Can people be ordered to act against their moral convictions?
The experiment will test whether a person can keep administering painful electric shocks to another person just because they are ordered to do so.
Procedures The participant met another "participant" in the waiting room before the experiment. Each participant got the role as a "teacher" who would then deliver a shock to the actor ("learner") every time an incorrect answer to a question was produced.
The participant believed that he was delivering real shocks to the learner. As the experiment progressed, the teacher would hear the learner plead to be released and complain about a heart condition.Once the 300-volt level had been reached, the learner banged on the wall and demanded to be released.Beyond this point, the learner became completely silent and refused to answer any more questions.The experiment: Say you have just conducted the Milgram Study. (Milgram actually waited two years before writing about his study.)Here's a shortened example of a research article that MIGHT have been written.DISCLAIMER: This article is not written by Stanley Milgram, but is intended as an example of a psychology research paper that someone might have written after conducting the first Milgram-study. Normally you would use double spacing in the paper.Although limitations address the potential weaknesses of a study, writing about them towards the end of your paper actually strengthens your study by identifying any problems before researchers or reviewers find them.Furthermore, pointing out study limitations shows that you’ve considered the impact of research weakness thoroughly and have an in-depth understanding of your research topic.It provides evidence that this dynamic is far more important than previously believed, and that personal ethics are less predictive of such behavior.
