severely psychologically damaged the patients with records of people greatly suffering from pain and people dying from the “treatment”. For more info : 2. The Monster Study The Monster Study was conducted in 1939 which included 22 orphans among which 10 were with stutters and separated into two groups. The first group was with a speech therapist who used positive therapy and praised the kids’ progress as well as their fluency of speech. The second group was with another speech therapist who criticized harshly the kids for every slight mistake that they made. The results showed that children received negative comments/responses were worse off in terms of their psychological health. The worst thing was that some children without stutters after the experiment developed some speech problems. Because of this, in 2007 six orphaned children of the study group were later awarded $925,000 in compensation for emotional damage that the 6-month study had caused them.

The Third Wave This experiment had a similar theme to the Milgram experiment. It started out in 1967 and the goal was to explore the ways democratic societies could be infiltrated by the appeal of fascism. The way they did the experiment was to collect a class of high school students and create a system that allowed some students to be considered members of a prestigious order. The students showed increased motivation to learn but also became eager to get on board with malevolent practices like excluding and ostracizing non- members in the class. The scary thing is that behavior also continued outside of the classroom. When it got out of control and it only took 4 days for it to happen, the experiment had to end. This typical experiment showed how power could be manipulated and those in power could change their personality and do mostly everything for their benefits/power in the society. For more info:

    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.
