Questions and Responses to Festinger and Carlsmith I think that this is a very interesting concept, but it almost seems like common sense for the most part. I understand that is always necessary to prove these types of concepts through experiments, but in this case, I don’t believe this experiment proved anything ground breaking. I could pose the question though that, if no reward is offered, why is it that the speech experiment turned out the way it did? It also seems to me that the reasoning they use later in the study can’t really be used in this case because there was no reward offered for writing the speech I understand that their positioning is that because the subjects were forced to right the speech their opinion wasn’t really influenced because they kept reminding themselves that they were forced to right the speech Also those who are listening to the speech, aren’t really forced to so as the speaker makes good

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
