1. Female
2. Appearance (i.e. a uniform), recognising they're in a position of authority, their respectfulness, kindness, a willingness to admit they may be wrong, the location of where the event is happening (i.e. I'd be way more obedient to a teacher if we were at school vs if I saw them at Sainbury's).
3. 6
4. 8
5. Because we think they are a genuine/legitimate figure of authority, we feel like they'll take responsibility for us so we follow their orders or we learned to fear the consequences of disobedience in childhood, making some of us more obedient in personality than others.
(I did GCSE/ do A-Level Psychology, so my answers most likely hold low validity Maybe it'll make a good evaluation point for your project).

Thank you :-) Can I make a note that you did/ are doing Psychology? Like you said, it will really help when it comes to my evaluation.

I also do A level psychology, it, just thought I'd say since i wasn't allowed to use people who did psych as they were likely to guess the aim.

Ahh. I probably should have said no psychology students too, but oh well. Thank you for telling me, I’ll make a note on that too.
