Findings:

  • Asch found that whenever the confederates give correct answers, then the naive participant makes errors less than 1% of the time
  • however, when the confederates give an incorrect answer like they did druing the critical trials, then the naive participant makes an error about 36.8% of the time
  • Asch found that only about 25% didn't conform therefore, about 75% of the participants did conform.
  • it was found that group size mattered because when they is just one confederate in the group then the naive participant doesn't feel under pressure…
