One incorrect confederate made little difference to the answers, but the influence steadily increased if two or three people disagreed. The figures did not change much after this point; more confederates made little difference. The number of people in the group also made a difference; the influence of dissenting voices leveled off for groups of more than six or seven people. The experiments also showed that, even if only one other participant disagreed with the confederates, the subject was more likely to resist peer pressure; it appears to be more difficult to resist the majority if
For example they do not try and put more effort into helping schools who are not as wealthy as some of the other ones. Instead with the powerful in control, they only give the wealthy more power. By doing so, they then give the poor a false consciousness. Therefore the conflict theory is demonstrating how this separation of power is bad and is allowing the poor to think as if they have no option but to keep being poor, and this is not the case. There should be more support on the less wealthy education in order to diminish the gap between the education systems and allow the poor to have better life
“In his article "The Two Step Flow of Communication" by Elihu Katz, he found opinion leaders to have more influence on people's opinions, actions, and behaviors than the media. Opinion leaders are seen to have more influence than the media for a number of reasons. Opinion leaders are seen as trustworthy and non-purposive. People do not feel they are being tricked into thinking a certain way about something from someone they know. However, the media can be seen as forcing a concept on the public and therefore less influential.
A patient that is categorized with anxious dysthymia would have symptoms of low self-esteem, undirected restlessness, and have issues with interpersonal rejection sensitivity (Langenfeld, 2012). Anxious dysthymia patients are more likely to seeking help for their condition and are less likely to attempt suicide (Langenfeld, 2012). They also tend to respond better to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. The anergic dysthymia patients tend to have lower energy, hypersomnia, and anhedonia (Langenfeld, 2012). Anergic dysthymia patients respond better to treatment with agent that increase norepinephrine or dopamine (Langenfeld, 2012).
This is not an effective way to get the best result from a team, but it has some advantages in situations where there is pressure to get the task done, like in the armed forces. This leadership style may use threats or intimidation to make sure that subordinates do what the leader requires. This could bring down subordinates by ignoring their knowledge and input. The leader monitors the work and each individual's performance; which is good to make sure that everyone is working. People are motivated by being rewarded; this brings encouragement helping the person who has done well do a better job and help them achieve more in the job.
Proving people wrong in this fashion is not the best strategy for persuading people who are opposed to your point of view. What he does next, however, is just plain brilliant. He asks the jurors to take an anonymous vote and if no one supports him he will comply with the others’ decision. Solomon Asch’s experiment on compliance showed that people in small groups are more likely to express unpopular opinions if they have the support of at least one other individual or if they can express their opinions anonymously. In a suspenseful counting of these new votes it turns out that it worked.
When one tells a lie no matter how insignificant it is, they lose their integrity because it becomes harder for people to trust them. People usually suffer consequences for being honest but they are more likely to be trusted compared to those who lie. Living by the honesty policy also gives one self confidence. Honest people trust themselves more compared to people who lie. Trust is very important for cultivating respect which is why honest people command greater respect in society compared to dishonest people.
Although managed care has been shown to reduce costs, it is probably not the answer to all of America’s health care problems. Some HMOs have made money through risk selection, accepting mostly healthier patients. Other HMOs may find it difficult to maintain quality of care once the easy savings from discounting and substitution have been taken and thus may be tempted to reduce services in precisely those areas where patients, hampered by information asymmetry, depend most on professionals for monitoring
None the less, it did make patients feel like the hallucinations were less of a threat to them, and so as CBT made the patients better equipped, it could be considered effective. However, the treatment it is not just a one-way system to the patient, it involves a practioner, and so for the true extent of effectiveness and appropriateness of CBT to be assessed, one must also consider them. Rathod et al (2005) found that white therapists were less successful with afro-Caribbean patients than they were with white ones, showing how crucial empathy between the patient and practioner is when determining the effectiveness of CBT. Although the evidence of the psychological treatments of schizophrenia are not at first entirely convincing, the treatment guidelines recommend that when combined with antipsychotic medication, the patient can get healthier and take a more active role, showing that it is very beneficial. Therefore in conclusion, psychological treatments could be considered effective and
But is the world aware of that? That is something Stockdale wonders, and with reason. In today's world people are more concerned with fitting in and being liked by others, that what should be their priority, ends up taking second place and with that comes brainwashing which is quite simple if a person is just looking to being accepted and does not have much care or knowledge to understand that their integrity is at stake. Stockdale mentions a man who had exactly that
