Research Method Paper Business Plan For Students
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.
It is recommended to use textbooks (both online and offline), articles and other sources (don't forget to use plagiarism checker) that deal with scientific explanations and review your topic from the most debatable side.
Instruments A "shock generator" was used to trick the participants into thinking that they were giving an electric shock to another person in another room.
The experimenter then instructed the participant to treat this silence as an incorrect response and deliver a further shock.
When asking the experimenter if they should stop, they were instructed to continue.
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.
