THe Milgram Experiment

The Milgram Experiment The Milgram experiment is one of Psychologys most controversial experiments. The study examines to what extend individuals obey an authority figure, and how far they will go, even if they believe their actions are harming another individual. This experiment found that sixty-two percent of subjects tested would obey authority even to the point of taking another individuals life. The question currently under investigation is if this experiment were conducted at Oklahoma State University during present time, would sixty-two percent of subjects go all the way to XXX? I believe that the answer is yes. Even when Milgram presented alternative studies that varied different aspects of the experiment, the results continued to show about the same number of subjects continuing to XXX. I believe that Oklahoma State University students would be just as prone if not more so to following this pattern. Most of the individuals at college have been taught to obey authority figures, such as teachers in primary and secondary schools, throughout their lives. They carry that belief with them to college, which makes them just as susceptible to authority now as any of the subjects that have previously participated in the experiment. After Milgrams experiment yielded such astonishing results, he preceded to vary the experiment to explore different factors and how they affect the outcome of the experiment. Regardless of what he changed, Milgram always seemed to obtain about the same number of subjects continuing to XXX. I believe this trend would hold true even today regardless of location, which was actually a factor that was varied in one of Milgrams alternate test. College students in current society might actually exceed the sixty-two percent originally found, because they have been exposed to violence at a much younger age, and have grown up in an era when violence is more widely accepted.
