Conformity Documentary Assignment

After watching the documentary please answer the 4 questions below. The goal is to show me you’ve understood the topic and can explain and apply persuasion tactics/theories. Question and answer format (as below) is fine. I do not want an essay.

When you have completed the assignment use the link on moodle to submit it. It must be submitted as either a word or pdf document. It will not accept other formats.

  1. What compliance and/or obedience factors that we’ve discussed do you think contributed to the fast food restaurant employees following the orders given to them over the phone?
  • War tactics are constantly changing with technology.  Increasingly, air assaults are carried out by camera-guided missiles fired from remote-controlled drone aircraft. How do you think this makes the experience different from when soldiers fought face-to-face? (Make sure you use social psyc concepts in your answer.)
  • In the fall of 2013, some Canadian university orientations received attention when a YouTube video of students singing a chant promoting rape of underage women went viral.  Both male and female students were shown singing the chant. Given what we’ve talked about in class why would young women sing a chant promoting rape?
  • You are still trying to convince me to drop the last exam and just give you all 100% on the exam. Using one of the compliance techniques discussed (e.g., foot in door, door in face, etc) explain how you would use the technique to change my mind.
