Similarly, compliance refers to when an individual accepts influence from a group to achieve a favourable reaction from them (Constable, Shuler, Klaber, & Rakauskas, 2015). Lastly, obedience is a form of social influence where an individual acts in response to a direct order from another individual (McLeod, 2007). Looking at various experiments performed by Solomon Asch, Stanley Milgram, and Philip Zimbardo, this paper 's purpose is to identify the numerous ways in which people influence others, and how that changes their behaviour and actions, as well as the differences between them. Conformity is divided into two groups, normative and informational. Conformity itself is defined as "a change in belief or behaviour in order to fit in with a group" (McLeod, 2016), because of group pressure.

Different ways of persuasion are used in order to convince individuals to conform, resulting to the change of attitudes or beliefs. Friends try to influence others for their own benefit; industries do the same in order to sell their products, charities in order to attain funding and priests aiming to change beliefs.

The videos “Tough Guise 2” and Jackson Katz’s TEDTallk are both extremely similar in that they both discuss the masculinity of males and how it is being used negatively in society today. There are many reasons and theory’s for why men do what they do but one factor that always seems to occur is trying to prove one’s masculinity. Whether proving it through strength, gender norms, personality, and sometimes even violence, it seems to be prevalent among every male. Victim blaming then happens after these incidents occur and women or children are looked at for causing these actions to happen to them. Both these videos were very informational and eye opening to the issues of male masculinity and “women’s issues”.
