Transcript of Invisible Rope
1. To study the extent to which social pressure from a majority group could affect a person to conform.
2. To see if people will trust their own judgment or if they will depend it to other people’s behaviour.
3. To determine if people will mimic the behaviour of others or if they will stick to their own senses.
The researchers performed a social experiment which is “The Invisible Rope” in which they will observe the people’s behaviour if they will conform or will just trust their own senses.
Observational learning is a learning that occurs through observing the behaviour of others. Albert Bandura, who is best known for the classic Bobo doll experiment, identified this basic form of learning in 1986. Bandura stressed the importance of observational learning because it helps people, especially children; acquire new responses by observing others' behaviour.
The researchers’ conducted a Social Psychology Experiment called “The Invisible Rope”. The invisible rope trick is when two people stand on either side of the hallway and pretend they have a rope strung across the street with both people leaning as if holding on to a rope really tight, it creates caution. This experiment focuses on people’s behaviour, on what they might do or act upon seeing the said experiment. Are they going pass through them? Will they avoid it? Or will they going to stay on the hypothesis that: "people will trust the behaviour of others more than their own senses."
In this experiment, you will see how people respond to what they see on other people or they will stick on what they think is right. Some people will say that the invisible rope is just harmless fun, but if anyone over reacts it’s their own fault.
The researchers chose “The Invisible Rope” to see if how people will trust the behaviour of others more than their own senses. The researchers chose the Starmall Las Piñas because people usually pass by and the area has enough space to perform the experiment. The researchers conducted the experiment on September 30, 2014, Tuesday. The researchers perform the experiment by having two people from the group that will be standing on opposite sides of each other and will hold an imaginary rope.
The researchers also provided two members from the group that will pretend that they will step or skip to the invisible rope and another member to film the said experiment.
A social model is significantly important in observational learning because it facilitates cognitive process behavior. It helps the learner encode what they observe and store it in memory for later imitation. While the model may not intentionally try to instill a particular behavior, many behaviors the learner observes, remembers, and imitates are actions that models display. Observational learning suggests that an individual's environment, cognition, and behavior all integrate and ultimately determine how the individual functions
When we are performing the experiment, some people mimic the actions of our associates by stepping to the imaginary rope. Some just passed through them while others just simply avoided it.
This experimental research aimed to observe on how people will respond on what they see on other people’s behaviour or they will stick on what they think is right. It was conducted on random people in the said location.
The instrument that was used is a video camera. The research aimed to know if an individual will conform on other people’s behaviour or will just rely on what they think is right. Some people followed a random person’s behaviour without confirming it, while others rely on their own and just avoided it.
Based on the findings of the data gathered, the researchers conclude the following:
1. Conformity is a type of Social Influence that may lead us changing our beliefs yielding to group pressures.
2. In some situation people are sure of their own judgment, they did not conform to the behaviours of others.
3. Some people walked directly across the invisible rope, because the surely know that there is no rope in front of them.
