When thinking back to how the mind starts controlling you I think back to my situation and how I immediately started judging that person without even thinking of what they are going through. I couldn't stop the judgements from coming in my head because my day was already off to a bad start. Just because Wallace wasn't able to control his mind from these thoughts doesn't mean I won't be able to as well but in fact I will keep trying. I won't let the comments control my mind but instead my own power will control what I think and
It was an attempt of “good triumphs” in a negative environment, which did not work within the students’ roles. The guards became abusive, the prisoners started to rebel, and it did not stop because Zimbardo gave himself a role with the guards. The clips and descriptions of the experiment’s results were one of the most shocking things I have ever seen or heard, although I had read a paragraph about the same experiment prior to taking this course. Unethical was an understatement, as prisoners would go crazy. “F___ your experiment!
This can be more difficult than it sounds, because it can be difficult to anticipate how participants will react to a study. It is usually easy to recognize when someone’s physical safety is in jeopardy, but it is complicated to recognize when a person’s emotional well-being is at risk. Researchers have an obligation to minimize any procedures that have the potential to cause harm to your participants. In general, avoid designs in which participants could be humiliated, embarrassed, scared, anxious, stressed, saddened, or discouraged. The participants’ physical and mental state should be the same as when they arrived for your experiment then by the end your experiment.
One factor that made the people more likely to disobey authority is conflicting authority. When two teachers were present, they no longer administered shocks after a disagreement occurred. Another factor that seemed to make people disobey authority, as mentioned earlier is the lack of a physical presence of an authority. So when the scientist called in to make commands, people were more likely to disobey. A third factor that allowed people to disobey authority was the rebellious action of others.
Overall, this experiment was not as effective because it was performed on adults, who are already set in their ways opposed to children that are more easily influenced. However this experiment did allow white individuals the opportunity to be discriminated against, which was something they had never experienced. Also, none of the people stood up for each other, which was one of the goals going into the experiment. Because of the results of the adult-aimed experiment, this should remain an experiment for children who have not yet formed their ideas and perceptions of
Some of the guards’ behaviors were cruel and immoral. The prisoners seemed to be under a lot of pressure. This experiment was out of line. If I were a participant in this experiment as a guard, I would have lay low and be aware that this is only an experiment. I would not take charge; I would correct the prisoners if they were wrong, but I will always try to know my limit.
The creature’s immediate reaction is to kill William. Murder is never justifiable and as a result of not having a relationship where Victor teaches the creature right from wrong, the creature does all he knows; which is hurting people. An identical reaction is seen in John Sharry’s article about a misbehaving four-year-old, “When I ask him why he does this he says he is angry and mad” (1). Even though their response to what they feel is drastically different, both the boy and the creature react in anger, which is interestingly suggesting that the creature is comparable to a
Likely, this also shown the principles in Waknuk have blinded the people terribly, people always think it is the punishment from God toward them but actually it is not. People in Waknuk are punished each other as well as from the belief spills of the “Old People” have left, however, these principles made the Waknuk society fall. Therefore, people in Waknuk should have acceptance to deviation and mutant people rather than send to the Fringes or kill them because they could lose talented people that could rise their
Strangely enough, Atticus was also able to see the good in Mayella Ewell, and it tore him apart having to destroy her testimony on the stand. In chapter eighteen Scout says, “Atticus hit her hard in a way that was not clear to me, but it gave him no pleasure to do so. He sat with his head down..”(Lee 252). When Atticus had to defend Tom he also had to show the jury that Mayella was speaking lies which made him upset to do so. He knew Mayella was a victim in the situation too and did not want to hurt her more than Bob Ewell already did.
Victor Frankenstein, is at fault for the creature’s actions. Victor was looking for some honor and triumph, but when he accomplished his experiment, not only did it bring terror to Victor, but to the whole world. The monster never learned right from wrong and was never raised correctly, his first moment of life, all he experienced was the fear in Victor's emotion, and was abandoned right from the start. Victor selfishly isolated himself from society and ran away from his responsibilities which caused destruction to the people Victor cared for and loved deeply. The creature was known as a monster and was doomed due to his appearance.
They feel as though they are worth nothing and they do not know how to make good decisions for themselves because the drugs are considered an effective numbing treatment. Siting in a small cell is only further damaging. They need to feel safe and have assurance that guidance is going to stick around. Many are crying out not to be heard and so many want to change and do not know how or have the resources available. When this happens the cycle continues.
