    Does anyone know if there's a scale or test for obedience? Please anyone?

    There's probably some overlap with the concept of conscientiousness which is measured in the big 5 personality assessments (lots of variants for testing this exist).

    I think the whole point of the obedience experiments was to suggest that behaviour is more influenced by the environment than by individual traits - although the original milgram experiments did find variation in how far people would go to shock others, i dont think anyone has made to scale to measure this.
