Standing in the Hallway Improves Students' Understanding of Conformity
Lawson, Timothy J.; Haubner, Richard R.; Bodle, James H.
Teaching of Psychology, v40 n2 p153-155 Apr 2013
To help beginning psychology students understand how they are influenced by social pressures to conform, we developed a demonstration designed to elicit their conformity to a small group of students standing in the hallway before class. Results showed the demonstration increased students' recognition of their own tendency to conform, knowledge of conformity, and appreciation of an in-class presentation about conformity. (Contains 1 table and 3 notes.)
