MILGRAMS RESEARCHPROS:Milgrams experiment was derived from trial of Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem. Eichmannwas a worker of Adolf Hitler during WWII in working with the Nazis in the slaying andenslavement of the Jewish Society. What caught Milgrams interest was the statement thatEichmann made about him just following orders, or his “Obedience authority”. I believe thatMilgram used deception for a good cause in his experiment. One way he used deception was byfixing the draw so that every participant was always chose to be the teacher and the insiders werethe learners.CONS:The negative aspects of the experiment I would say is the voltages that they used in thisexperiment. The voltage that was 450 voltz was actually severe shock levels, if a person keptgoing and answering questions due to the fear of pain, they would have experienced pain beyondnormal pain in real life, which is a violation of one of the Ethical Principles of Psychologists andCode of Conduct.But even through the positive and negative affects this experiment he did receive an answer tohis question. That people will be obedient to authority and carry out a harmful act in fear of painfrom who ever the one is in authority. The only thing he should do next time is have femaleparticipants as well, because what if this only works for men, or have a different affect onfemales?
