  • Resisting obedience
    • Proximity
      • resistance increased when the victim could be seen, or when other confederates were present
        • being made aware of the effects of obedient actions and having social support means the individual is more likely to resist pressure to obey
    • Status
      • when Milgram's study was moved from Yale uni to a downtown office, more participants felt able to resist the experimenter
        • tells us that status of the authority figure is a key factor in obedience and its resistance
