While we have studied several concepts, ideas, and experiments in psychology 1001, there is one that sticks out the most to me; The Milgram Experiment. This is the experiment where Stanley Milgram studied subjects obedience to authority figures by administering voltage shocks to another person. What fascinated me the most was the large percentage of people who went past the lethal amount of voltage for a human. What scares me about this experiment is that it could be very plausible for someone like me, who doesn't get satisfaction from seeing other people hurt, to go beyond that lethal voltage dose. It's no surprise that these findings caused a stir in the psychology world. While it doesn't help to explain why we are so obedient to authority figures, it does help to explain some historical catastrophes like the holocaust. I will remember this experiment for years to come because it can be seen in everyday situations in all of our lives. Whether it's at work where you are following the orders of your boss even though you think they are wrong. Or it could be at school with your group leader. This also raises the question of believing someone or something because of its status. I believe that understanding the basis of this experiment can help anyone be more confident in respectfully questioning certain sources and being able to evaluate the outcomes and other alternatives.
