Variations on Asch's Original study


Unanimity of the majority (presence of a dissenter)-

-instructed confederates to give a unanimous wrong answer

-in other trials he got some confederates to dissent from the majority and give a correct answer/different wrong answer

-Results showed that the presence of a dissenter reduced conformity rates to 5% from 37%

-concluded that unanimity of the majority is a factor affecting conformity when situation is unambiguous and breaking unanimity was enough to give participants independence to gove their own answer.
