1. ‘Schizoid' personality in childhood: Auditory P300 and eye tracking responses at follow-up in adult life • Blackwood, D. H. R, Muir, W. J., Roxborough, H. M., Walker, M. R., Townshend, R., Glabus, M. F., and Wolff, S. • Published 1994 Method- The participants’ IQ’s were taken and all were scored on a certain test. The psychological testing was done by people who did not know the diagnostic statuses of the participant. The subjects were told to recline in a chair in a room with no noise to perform a discrimination task between different tones. The participants had electrodes attached to the ear lobes and eye movements were recorded by electrodes that were placed to the right eye.
In Zimbardo’s prison study he had selected students after putting out an advertisement for the experiment. He first interviewed everyone to ensure that none of them had any previous medical or psychological conditions, or any history of arrests/ drugs abuse. Then they were given tests to ensure their personalities were a right fight for the study. The students wore uniforms and the prisoners even had to wear a locked chain
Jane Elliot Split her 3rd grade c lass into two different groups brown eyed group and the blue eyed group; before splitting them she asked them is being discriminating to others right and they answer the way she expected them to answer because it has been taught to them since they have been in her class, she then proceeded to ask them why was it wrong and they could not give her a clear answer she also ask them would they like to know how it feels to be discriminated against and they all said yes. She conducted this exercise for a total of two days she started the first day off letting the children know that the brown eyed students were more smarter and all around better than the blue eyed student. She then withness some of the sweetest kids turn into nasty discriminating adolescence they tease the blue eyed children every chance they could. The brown eyed student had such a boost of confidence their academic score was up and they were trying harder to hold to the title of having brown eyes. On the other hand, the blue eyed students grades were down and they kept this sad era throughout the day.
(“Behavioral Study of Obedience,” par. 11) There were 40 males who volunteered and received $4.50 or 146.8฿ each for participating. Milgrim, then, told them that there will be another participant working with them in pairs, who was really Milgram’s confederate named Wallace. Next, they were to pick a card from a jar indicating the learner (the person who receives the shocks), or the teacher (the person who gives the shocks). However, in every trial, it was fixed that Wallace was the learner and all the other participants were the teachers.
The researcher will receive training in human subject research. After obtaining the ethical approval, all nurses and department managers will be informed about the study, its purpose, and its significance. Participants will be chosen from different departments and during different shifts with helping of the department managers. Randomization will be stratiﬁed by gender and age (males and females, age from 18-35, and males and female, age from 36-55). To prevent subversion of randomization, the statistician will hold the randomization list, releasing an assignment once a participant consents and is eligible.
After that, the examiner asks the participant to recall the words that belonged to list A, without reading it again (Trial 6). After a 20-minute interval, the examiner asks the participant to retrieve the words that belong to list A (Trial 7) without reading this list again. After Trial 7, the participant is presented with a test of memory recognition, in which a list containing the 15 words from list A, the 15 words from list B, in addition 20 distracting words (phonologically or semantically similar to the words in list A and B) read to the participant by the examiner. Upon each word read loudly, the participant is requested to mark if it belongs to list A, or not. The total time for use of the RAVLT ranges from 35 to 40 minutes.
The worst part about it was all my friends ,who were in a different scheduled hour than me, talk to each other about how great of a teacher he was. I mean I didn’t get it. What was so great about this teacher, and why was everyone so inspired by him? I kept thinking about this until the preparations for the creed speaking event was starting. For those who didn’t take FFA the creed was a 5 paragraph speech that every freshman had to take.
In the first and second trial, six students and a teacher participated in the experiment. The six students knew exactly about the purpose of the test and were asked to answer two right answers correctly and answer the remaining seven answers incorrectly. However, a teacher which was the subject of the experiment did not know that it was a psychology test about social conformity. The test was introduced as a Visual Perception Test in which the seven participants should state aloud which line (A, B or C) was most likely as the original/target line. The nine questions were projected in the screen in a form of slides presentation in which is prepared beforehand.
Experimenters led by Solomon Asch asked students to participate in a "vision test." In reality, all but one of the participants was the shill of the experimenter, and the study was really about how the remaining student would react to the confederates' behavior. The participants (the real subjects and the confederates) were all seated in a classroom where they were told to announce their judgment of the length of several lines drawn on a series of displays. They were asked which line was longer than the other, which were the same length, etc. The confederates had been prearranged to all give an incorrect answer to the tests.
