2. In a group meeting, what is likely to happen to members holding a minority opinion? If you held a minority opinion in a jury, what could you do to avoid the social pressure to conform? How would you try to convince others to consider your perspective?
3. Provide examples from your own life of instances when you succumbed to conformity, compliance, and obedience. What are the main differences among these different types of social influence? Is one stronger or weaker than the others?
4. Why are authority figures often blindly obeyed? What goal does this serve?
5. Is the foot-in-the-door tactic effective? Why or why not? How would you use it?
Please complete the following:
Social facilitation theory predicts that the presence of others is arousing, leading to improved performance on tasks that are simple or well-mastered, but hindering performance on complex, or unmastered tasks. Your job is to design an experiment to test this theory.
State a specific hypothesis:
Who are your participants?
What is your independent variable?
Describe your different experimental conditions. How will you manipulate task complexity/mastery? How will you manipulate the presence of others?
What is your dependent variable?
How will you measure performance in the condition without the presence of others?
Briefly describe the steps of your experimental procedure.
Please complete the following:
Select one of the following to use the foot-in-the-door technique, the low-ball technique, the bait and switch technique, or the labeling technique. Apply that specific technique to an anti-texting and driving campaign. Describe the campaign and explain how your technique would work.

1. How does being a member of a crowd affect one's behavior? Do you think it matters if the members of the crowd are friends or strangers? Are there other aspects of a crowd situation that would also influence one's behavior (e.g., lighting)? How do you think you could encourage members of a crowd to behave in ways that are more consistent with their normal values?
In groupthink, people share the same beliefs and values. A crowd has the power to influence one's behavior, and individuals lose both their ability to reason (Templeton, Drury & Philippides, 2015). Templeton et al. (2017) established that no matter whether an individual is a stranger or a friend, their behaviors and personalities change
Labeling Technique to an Anti-Texting and Driving Campaign
According to Triplett and Upton (2016), labeling technique involves stigmatizing or shaming a deviant person for defiling the stipulated norms of the society. The labeling technique aims to eliminate deviant behavior from reoccurring and driving while texting is one of the significant
Social Facilitation Theory
In the study experiment, the hypothesis will be that other people's presence leads to improved performance in well-mastered and straightforward tasks.
The participants of the study will include students selected from the college. According to convenience sampling, choosing fellow students is effective because it results...
