Transcript of Conformity Prezi

Finally In Asch's experiment, 1/3 were of the volunteers of yielders even though they knew the group was wrong

Independents are able to act alone in a group.

In our society, it is more important to be socially accepted than to be right. What is it? Conformity To adapt one’s attitudes to fit another’s attitudes
Usually out of peer pressure because we want to fit it.

The Asch Experiment Who? Almost every human being adapts to what we know as the norm. Others that go against the "norm" are often called "independents". They operate on their own standards against what others do. It is not uncommon for them to be outcasts to most people. Another example you may ask?

He put up a card and had them answer questions about the lines. At first everyone answered correctly, then the confederates answered wrongly while the volunteer answered the question correctly. From then on if the volunteer answers correctly, he was called "independent". If he changed his answer, even though he knew it was wrong for the purpose of matching the others, he was a "yielder".
