SOCIAL PSYCH- deindividuation

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I was wondering, do any of you know how findings from Zimbardos Deindividuation study (the one where there are anonymous and identifiable participants) have been applied?
I'm assuming applied in reality.

I was jsut looking at past paper questions. maybe i'll just copy and paste it.
What would you guys answer these questions with?

[b]
(a) Outline one research study investigating collective (e.g. crowd) behaviour.
[6 marks]
(b) Describe how findings from the study outlined in part (a) have been applied.
[6 marks]
© Evaluate the applications described in part (b).[/b]



Also, what is the difference between obedience and indepentdent behaviour?

Thanks

Hi!

This is a direct quote from my teacher's powerpoint on Deindividuation
"- It has been applied in football crowd control, management of political crowds, rallies and riots by individuating people involved in the crowd."

And here are my notes on obedience:

Obedience, or submissive compliance

- The act of obeying; dutiful or submissive behaviour with respect to another person (just one person)
- The trait of being willing to obey

- Obedience differs from:
§ Compliance: behaviour influence by the peers
§ Conformity: behaviour intended to match that of the majority

Obedience is often associated with social dominance and submission.

Forms of human obedience:
To laws
To social norms
To a monarch, government, religion, church
To a God
To self-imposed constraints (ex. Vow of chastity)
To a dominant
In patriarchal societies, obedience of a wife or child to their husband or father
In feudal societies, obedience of a vassal to his lord



I hope this helps! Edited by zYvy
