Transcript of Zimbardo Group Project

The Lucifer Effect Scripture Romans 12:3-13 3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. 4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your[a] faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead,[b] do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. Mean Girls The Lucifer Effect understanding how good people turn evil Written by Philip Zimbardo
Conducted the Stanford prison experiment (1971)
Twenty-four male students randomly assigned to play the part of a prisoner/prison guard, to study the power of the situation. MISSION STATEMENT
Through the volunteer work of APU students along with counselors and faculty, Camp-Wannado has provided an opportunity for those children of under-deserved communities to have new experiences. With a well-rounded and creative program, our kids are introduced to the idea of reaching their full potential and of making a greater impact on the community. Camp- Wannado emphasizes on building relationships, building leaderships, and on letting children explore their interests in possible future careers.

Dress Up/ Career Social roles are the part people play as members of a social group.
PROBLEM: With each social role you adopt, your behavior changes to fit the expectations that both you and others have of the particular role.

The guard and the prisoner both"played the part", but due to the power of the situation, lost themselves in their role.
The prisoner became so emerged in his role that he truly believed he was a prisoner, and refused to leave the study.
"It's not the Apple that is bad, but the barrel." Cady was unexpectedly given the role as a "plastic".
Her behavior changed to fit the the expectations others had of her in that role. The Power of the Situation Camp-Wannado Role-Playing Activity New environment introduced to the kids
