14 So we have a little something to talk about here. The 250 of you just gave you professor the finger and said ‘fuck you’ to your professor on the very first day. I was hoping that I’d have a class of bright young students, but already, I’m not so sure. Let’s get to the bottom of this. Did you not know what it means to give the finger? Did you not realize that I was looking when you did it? I didn’t have my back turned. I could see you and find out who you are? Did you not realize that as your professor I’m going to give you a grade at the end of the quarter that could keep you out of med school, grad school, or almost any career you choose? In fact, it is explicitly against university policy for you to do what you just did. [pick someone from the audience] What’s your name, your full name? And you gave me the finger, right? Good - TA’s write that down So why would you give me the finger? [because you told us to] So what? What if the person standing next to you had asked you to give the professor the finger? Would you have done it then? [no] Then why when I tell you to? --> (Next slide)

15 …Conforming to authority. Right and in fact you’ve been conforming to authority since the second I started the class - in some ways that you were aware of (standing up, stretching, etc) and some ways that you probably aren’t (like all of you who are being quiet right now instead of having your own conversations). Here, conformity to authority creates conflicting demands because on the one hand you should do what the authority asks you to (ie. give the finger) but on the other hand you should be respectful to authority (which is why you are being quiet while I speak). So this creates conflict and ambiguity and its hard to know what to do. This kind of social conflict can create a real sense of anxiety in your gut (did any of you feel this?). I describe this with the technical term “yucky feeling”

17 How do we figure out what to do in these situations that are ambiguous and conflictual? How do we figure out what the situation “really is” and what to do in it?
