1. Was it ethical to do the prison study in the way that Zimbardo conducted it? Why or why not? Explain your position substantively. The way the Zimbardo Prison Experiment was conducted may have not been the best thing, but I feel like the results are 100% true. In order to get true results sometimes bad things happens, but the information that was gather is true. Most of what we see on TV is fake and many people believe it is true. These students where all volunteers and decided to do this. At the end I did see that these students didn’t give them the study consent to be arrested at home and that was wrong. 2.What social psychological constructs did the study reveal? Would the same information havebeen learned if the study had been conducted differently? If yes, how might you adapt the study to address ethical concerns and still obtain results relevant to our understanding of behavior in social settings?
