Transcript of Psychology Experiment

Conformity Experiment By: Katherine Martin Control Group Experimental Group Hypothesis In a group, a person will feel left out if everyone else is doing something that he/she is not. Once the person feels left out he/she will then copy what the others in the group are doing. Psychology
Period 03
February 18, 2011 In other words, will the decisions of a group effect the behavior of an individual? Did you notice Rhodelyn's answer during trial 2?
Or what about her reaction during trial 3?
Or how about her answer to trial 4? Her answer during trial 2 was the same false answer the actors had given. In trial 3, she gave the correct answer, but she became confused after hearing another false answer from the actor after her. Then again during the last trial she gave the same false answer like the actors. Sheldon Sherisse Princess Rhodelyn Results: conclusion: Even though she knew the correct answer she was still hesitant to respond. My hypothesis was almost proven wrong during trial 3 because she had said the correct answer but by her facial expression you could tell that she didn't want to say it because everyone else was saying a different answer. However, because of her answers during trials 2 and 4 my hypothesis was proven. Thus, decisions of a group may affect the behavior of an individual. What is Group Conformity? It is the agreement between an individual's behavior and a group's standards or expectations. A conformist is one who follows the majority's desires or standards.
