Assessment II - Milgram’s Obedience Study: Experimenter (2015)1.The participants were 40 males that are aged between 20-50, no matter the jobpositions. Milgram recruited the people by posting the newspaper advertisement andmailing directly to random people. The independent variables of the experiments arethe fake “learner” participant who was one of the member of applying thisexperiment, the range of the voltage for the punishment to the “learner,” and a doctorwho use a set of responding scripts to the participants who showed unwillingness tocontinue the experiment. The dependent variables are the participants’ reaction towardthis experiment and their feedback from the questions that Milgram asked after theexperiment is finished. The hypothesis of experiment was related to Holocaust, whichis to see if the people really have a flaw so they would obey cruel orders. Milgrambelieved that Nazi members who commit evil deeds are only obeying superior orders;they are not cold-blooded monsters who were born as an evil, but ordinary people likehim and us. The experiment’s result proofed that Milgram’s hypothesis was correct.
