Asch believed that it was often to avoid social conflict and social disapproval or becoming an ‘outcast’ in the group. This type of conformity could be put into the category of compliance, in which membership of the group is valued so much that people conform to the behaviour of the others but still privately hold their own views, for example, a group of friends want to order drinks, they all choose to drink a glass of water but you want a coke, you may choose water to avoid a conflict or rejection. Asch’s study was very influential and showed he power of group influence over decision making in the brain and have implications for many aspects of group behaviour such as social interaction. His experiment showed the importance of the majority influence on people’s decisions. Asch showed the importance of normative social influence, our desire to be normal, which is based on our desire to be liked and accepted in a group, and how we conform for social acceptance and approval to avoid rejection, this is heavily linked to compliance within a group.
Firstly, overt observation is when the researcher would make all the pupils aware that they are being studied and makes sure they give their permission before the observation takes place. This makes their research ethical, however observer effect can occur which is where the truants may behave differently because they are being observed, giving unreliable results. The other type of participant observation is covert studies. This means the truants wouldn’t know they were being watched, so they are more likely to behave like they normally would, giving valid results, however this raises ethical concerns such as the right to withdraw and deception. A strength of participant observation when investigating truancy from school is results are usually valid compared with getting the students to fill out a questionnaire about truanting when there is no real way of telling if they are giving accurate answers.
There are also others who do not drink often that do not tolerate alcohol well. Those who do not tolerate alcohol well are obviously impaired. People who tolerate alcohol well may have an above average BAC, but not be impaired since they are more experienced. People who have such a great toleration for alcohol should not be lumped in with the others who do not and cause accidents. If they are punished, then it should not be in the same way as the people with no tolerance are punished since those people caused more of a risk to others than they did.
Nowadays people don’t like when other people are in their business. Usually when they get caught in the act of doing the opposite they tend to get hurt. So by applying these rules it will keep you out of trouble and safe. Nobody uses these “unofficial” rules. While some people are not using these rules, a lot of other people are using this rule.
• How might factors such as diversity, attitude, learning, and work styles affect collaboration? I think that diversity does not really affect collaboration unless people are just immature. Just because someone is different then you should not affect what work does and does not get done. On the other hand I do think that attitude, learning, and work styles could affect collaboration because if anyone has a bad attitude in the group they will most likely not listen to anyone’s ideas and be negative all day. I also think that a person learning ties into their work styles because someone can be taught a different way and that is the way that they work and one person might be upset about that.
This is a term/topic, which was developed by a social psychologist name Irving Janis. Groupthink is actually a process, which should be very avoided by jurors. It makes people in a group come to a decision, which is not the right one. The reason is because they are trying to move fast and “get it over with quick”. People in groups that have this problem are often afraid of getting into a fight with someone or a debate, so they rely on the easy route and agree with whomever.
It sounds confusing but when people see a man with a gun, no matter what side of the law he is on, they will get intimidated and possibly fear him. Taking away this gun will give that man less power, but he will also gain the people’s respect. For a society with police and people to coexist peacefully without conflict, weapons should not be involved. This way, less crime will occur and police will be respected more. A real life example of this perfect world is England today.
Each of these factors plays a significant role in conformity and have their own process. Informational influence is when you conform due to the fact that you believe others are correct in their adjudications. For conformity is when you accept to put your personal feelings or opinions to the side in order for the group to be unified. When a person conforms they become one with a group for it shows the person’s dedication to the group’s standards. “Culture, gender, personality and other factors are believed to have great impact on how people conform themselves in a group settings” (Fiske, 2004).
On the other hand, others believe that the client’s privilege should be respected because they believe that therapy can help people to lead more peaceful and happier lives and that those who needed the help would not be willing to seek it if they weren’t under the impression that everything that was shared during their sessions would remain confidential. Also, during therapy embarrassing and shameful personal experiences may be shared and if presented in court, it becomes public record that anyone has access to which may embarrass the client. We must ask ourselves which takes precedence when they clash. The consequences vary
The consumption of alcohol makes people feel like it is okay to have those feeling because they are not themselves. It makes the college students loose attention and lack of senses and corrupts their judgment of many things. Different students
