    The method he used was to administer electric shocks to that person. The recruitment of volunteers was done through an advert on the newspaper. This advert talked about a "study of memory and learning" that was going to take place at Yale, concealing, of course, the real nature of the experiment. In addition this experiment was remunerated $4.50 for just turning up. The participation was of 40 males, between 20 and 50 years of age and jobs ranged from unskilled to professional. The Psychologist Stanley Milgram created an electric shock generator with 30 switches. The switch was clearly marked in 15-volt increments, ranging from 15 to 450 volts. Each level was marked with a different label depends on the type of intensity that was. Starting at moderate (75 to 120 volts) to XXX for the highest levels (435 to 450 volts) This electric shock generator was actually fake and only produced sound when the switches were pressed. At the beginning of the experiment they were introduced to each other. The person who volunteered met an "experimenter," the person who ran the experiment and another person who was indicated as another subject. The other subject was actually an accomplice who…

    Milgram (1974) used this perspective to explain the behaviour expelled by the participants when continuing to administer increasingly severe shocks, even after the ‘learners’ protesting and once the experimenter had exclaimed that they would take responsibility, allowing the ‘teacher’ to take an agentic shift from autonomy (Reicher & Haslam, 2012). Nissani (1990), suggests that the human cognitive system is not fully reliable to recognise potentially malevolent authority despite them being…

    true nature of the study was to see how far the test subjects would go when obeying instruction that harmed another person. Participants were grouped together in twos to find out who would be the ‘learner’ and who would be the ‘teacher’. Unbeknown to the participants the draw was fixed so that the participant was always the ‘teacher’ and the ‘leaner’ was one of Milgram’s associates. The ‘learner’ was set up in a room and had electrodes attached to their arm. The ‘teacher’ and researcher went…

Milgram’s experiment included a “learner” who was an actor, a “teacher” who was the actual subject of the experiment, and an “authority” who was the experimenter (Milgram 56). There was a variety of male teachers ranging from 20 to 50 years old (Milgram 59). They were all from the same geographic location but held different professions. The teacher…

    unethical. It put the teachers in a position to have to harm someone. The teachers could choose the voltage used in the shock chair but it had to be at least 15 volts. It is not morally right to give someone no other choice than to harm someone else. The First Study Milgram was studying how punishing someone can affect their learning. His experiment included a teacher that was a male recruit, a learner who was associated with Milgram, and an authority figure. The learner had to sit in a chair…

    The lighter and smaller version would reduce the amount of personnel it would carry. This would help increase stability while preserving survivability. Making it shorter and lighter will help it traverse through different terrain with less risk of rollovers and getting stuck. Modifying the driver training will also help mitigate the driver error on rollovers as well. Mitigating the electrical shock hazard would take extra training and knowledge on what you need to look for. Another way is…
