Most of the participants became very agitated, stressed and angry at the experimenter.
Many continued to follow orders throughout even though they were clearly uncomfortable.
Most theories suggest that only very disturbed people are capable of administering pain to an ordinary citizen if they are ordered to do so.
Our experiment tested people's obedience to authority.
The participant believed that he was delivering real shocks to the learner. As the experiment progressed, the teacher would hear the learner plead to be released and complain about a heart condition.
Once the 300-volt level had been reached, the learner banged on the wall and demanded to be released.
14 persons did not obey the experimenter and stopped before reaching the highest levels.
All 40 participants continued to give shocks up to 300 volts.
