Introducing an ally who resisted the majority caused conformity levels to drop sharply (5%). The presence of an ally makes an individual feel more confident and better able to stand up to the majority. Asch also discovered that people are better able to resist pressure to conform if the decision has a moral dimension. For Asch’s participants, the costs of conforming were not particularly great given the insignificance of the task. However if the behaviour is judged as immoral such as joining others in cheating there is less evidence of conformity as the costs are perceived as greater.

Robert Louden stated that as virtue ethics is focused on the individual, it neither resolves nor attempts to resolve big moral dilemmas. It may help the moral agent virtuous but it does not give any answerers relating to an ethical crisis. Scholars such as Aristotle, however, would disagree with this point saying that each individual has to habitually do what is right for a period of time as a result of habitually doing what is right we naturally do what is good. In time, this leads to the growth and well-being of everyone in society. Because of this I would say that this weakness isn’t strong enough to say
All humanistic studies are conducted unscientifically. This is a strength of this is that they are less artificial in the way they conduct their studies, this in turn makes the tests more ecologically valid. However a weakness of this is that they have no objective results and they are unable to control variables. This makes causality harder to establish and means psychologists are unable to predict what is going to happen. The humanistic approach represents the ‘healthy half of psychology’ and suggests that we are all with good intentions.
The two were discriminated because the suspects thought that they were gay or assumed it. I feel a person should not assaulted or killed because of the lifestyle they live. In “ Because That’s What We Do to Faggots,” Wilchins explains to the reader about two assaults on homosexuals that never hit mainstream. The first story was a man named Alexander Gray, who resided in Washington D.C. On June 9, Gray was battered by three or four men with a shovel while they yelled
Two characters that show bewilderment throughout the course of the novel is Scout, and Bob Ewell. One character in the novel that shows ignorance throughout the course of the novel is Bob Ewell. "This morning Mr. Bob Ewell stopped Atticus on the post office corner, spat in his face, and told him he'd get him if it took the rest of his life. "(271) Bob Ewell was desperate for revenge and the help that Atticus was trying to prove Tom's innocence of something that Bob Ewell caused. This quote is important because it showed that Bob had no respect for Atticus, and his embarrassment in court was his main priority in getting him back.
In this paper, I will argue for Butler’s view on how certain gender performance is restricted in these numerous fields, and how Ms. Butler would object to these various situations. In the opening statement of Gender Trouble, Butler states, “feminist theory has assumed that there is some existing identity, understood through the category of women, who initiates feminist interests and goals.” (CITE GENDER TROUBLE PAGE 1 HERE) By this quote, she explains that feminist theory created the problem that it represents, while at the same time preventing its own progression. She supports this claim with her primary example of gender restriction in the field of representation in politics. Although this problem has no surefire resolution, it is suggested that in order for women to have true political visibility, the development of an identity that truly represents one as an individual is key. Butler suggests the following theory as a solution to these multifaceted complications.
I think that the higher the social status of a person, the less jealous they will be because when a person has succeeded as far as society is concerned they have nothing left to envy or want. Social status negatively correlates to jealousy. One possible outcome I might find is that my hypothesis was correct in that there is a positive correlation between social status and jealousy. Participants who typically got a low
