      • Lab experiment
      • P's were told the study was looking at the effects of discipline on learning
      • P had to ask 'the learner' questions and they had to pick one of 4 options, if they got it wrong the P would have to give them an electric shock
      • When they reached shock level 300 vocal response or protest was heard, when 315 was reached he went silent
      • The researcher gave the P 4 prods before they let them stop
        • Please continue
        • The experiment requires you to continue
        • It is absolutely essential that you continue
        • You have no other choice, you must go on
