As they had to electrically shock the learner, the subjects showed the symptoms of nervousness. Some subjects looked reluctant to go further with the experiment and the others criticized the research. They knew what they were doing was horrific and the learner was probably in great pain. However, the subjects were unable to defy the experimenter, or the authority. Their once thought to be clear judgment became clouded.
Deception can only be used in research if there is no harm caused to the participants. Although deception was required to make the study successful, it was unethical as it tricked participants to believe they had caused suffering towards another human, resulting in psychological stress. Participants of Milgram’s study were deceived as they were convinced the experiment was about “the effects of punishment on learning” and were made to believe they were giving real electric shocks to the learner. They were unaware that there was no 'learner ' and they were listening to recordings of a person screaming in pain. At one point, the screams stopped which made the participants believe the learner was unconscious.
The grotesque is part of the whole story, since the banality of superficial conversation till the moral blindness and the disappointing ending. The grotesque shows the misperception of the world by Mrs. Hopewell and her daughters. People that are busy judging others and not seeing themselves often end up disappointed. The society is in chaos. Who knows the rules will win the game.
This topic let us think the nature of moral deliberation for example what one religion can see an action as to be morally good but a different religion might see it different. So, which of the religions should be take it as base to considers actions to be morally good or wrong. Therefore, the Divine Command Theory of Morality can have advantages, for example if you obey God’s commands you will be rewarded but if you disobey you will be punished, but it also have disadvantages starting from Euthyphro’s dilemma leading this theory
Constructive Criticism Ready An ear that listens to life-giving rebukes will be at home among the wise. Anyone who ignores instruction despises himself, but whoever listens to correction acquires good sense. PROVERBS 15:31-32 Set One of a coach’s toughest jobs is telling athletes what they are doing wrong. Most coaches try to do it constructively, but even then many athletes will choose to ig- nore the instruction or make excuses, blaming everyone else for the problems they themselves have caused. Recently, I, too, was reminded of my imperfection through constructive crit- icism.
In Asch’s study of conformity, he shockingly found that many people will give the wrong answer to an obvious question if everyone else gives that answer before them. This can be linked to teens bullying someone despite their conscience telling them otherwise because all of their friends are doing it. Robbins highlights Whitney’s own experiences with being afraid to not do what her friends are doing, such as bully people. Since Asch’s study, scientists have delved deeper into the study of why this occurs, and Berns discovered a link between physiological experiences of fear and non-conformity. I notice myself experience even the physiological symptoms associated with
Many people who learn about obedience research have been able to stand up to arbitrary or unjust authority. People who get to know the purpose of the experiment make them felt Betrayed, Upsetting, Traumatized, Guilty, Embarrassing, Shock, and see them questioning their Self-image. And the people who stopped and refuses to go on felt Relief, Annoyed, Proud, Satisfied, Positive. So to get rid of this feeling we can resist the pressure of authority by questioning the authority, Asking yourself “is this something that I would do on my own?”, don't follow blindly someone, if you think that it is not right, or you felt uneasy about. Always think on your own, and put yourself into others shoes to feel what other will feel.
You do have to learn plays in college but it’s not as complicated these college plays will help you be better for NBA plays. Young players going to NBA aren’t as strong as if they get stronger going to college. If they want to compete they would go to college first. I have noticed that players who go to college become really smart and they do smarter things in the NBA such has doing the right angled pass or just to have better basketball
As stated in our textbook, “Conformity is a change in behavior or belief as the result of real or imagined group pressure.” One can believe that most people will torture an innocent person just because they are ordered to because of the conditioning received since childhood. Obedience is a type of social influence where someone acts in response to a direct order from an authoritative figure doing the influencing. The epitome experiment by Stanley Milgram concluded that most people followed orders from the authoritative figure regardless how immoral the act was. People continued to send electric shock to people knowing that it was causing pain and can possibly lead to death. The 1954 novel by William Golding, Lord of the Flies, is also a good example of obedience regardless of morality.
The experimenter betrayed the participants who were made to believe that they were imposing pain on the learners and were put on stress. Some teachers even believed that they have hurt or killed the learner causing a lot of stress. Milgram also lied about the experiments, informing his participants that the purpose of the experiment was to study about the effects of punishment on learning; however the real purpose of the experiment was to measure the obedience. Even though the participants were not informed after the experiment was over, opponents believed that it was not enough because it did not stop the psychological damage that have affected the
