Question: Identify two factors that have been shown to affect obedience to authority. Briefly discuss how each of their factors affects obedience to authority.
Answer: One factor would be the legitimacy of authority these factors create high levels of obedience
. For example, Milgram's Study showed how social hierarchies within society might affect likeliness to obey. We accept these authority figures to have the right to gain social powers over others. this means it would allow society to function adequately.
Another factor would be the agentic state we may obey individuals in a higher social status as we believe we lose a sense of reposnsiblilty as the authority would be in control of our behaviour. This may justify that we are doing what we are being told.
