Guards were notified to make sure to keep control of the environment however, refrain from using any physical force or derogatory remarks unless absolutely necessary. Within the first two days of the experiment the mental decline of the prisoners was obvious as they displayed and irritated and isolated they felt. They started to react negatively to their environment putting their mattresses and sheets up against the viewing of the cells, and destroying their environments. The guards tried to keep the prisoners from doing so, by reprimanding the individuals and putting them in a solitary confinement room with no windows or access to the outside cell mates. This was done to mimic the solitary confinement of an actual prison when prisoners refuse to
S’pose you couldn’t go into the bunk house and play rummy ‘cause you was black. How’d you like that?”(68). Crooks feels that he doesn’t have nobody so he is explaining how he has things for his life and wishes he could have somebody who cared about him in his life. No body in the book really cares for Crooks because he is different so everyone is in the bunk house except for him playing rummy while he is sitting inside his room all by himself. To let the reader know how Crooks fells Steinbeck uses characterization to show how Crooks thinks and feels.
As soon as we opened we were busy; I felt like I was at work for only an hour. Out of the dozens of people I met with today I only approved three applications for utility assistance. I know it sounds harsh, but most of the clients didn 't meet the criteria for services. Every time I deny a client, I can’t help but have the feeling like I was destroying
Although Claudio intends to comment upon Leonato he unintentionally reveals his own shortcoming: that ironically Claudio doesn’t himself know the implications of what he is doing due to him being misinformed or, that in truth, Leonato is in fact innocent. Such consequential drastic violence based on misinformation is striking, making this a powerful moment in the play, particularly as the audience recognises that he has been misled and in turn is misleading those around him. Such misrepresentation and misinformation is the main cause of confusion in the scene, greatly infecting those most vulnerable: evidently in Leonato whose rhetorical question “are these things spoken, or do I but dream?”... ... middle of paper ... ...egree to which his perception of reality has bee moulded by Don John: Leonato, stand I here? Is this the Prince? Is this the Princes Brother?
Now sure, the Stanford prison guards didn’t go that far as the torture and abuse at Abu Ghraib but the torture and abuse towards the prisoners became worse by the day indicating they could have gone as far as Abu Ghraib. However, in both cases there are unusual punishments and cruelty. This was due to the authority allowing it, ordering it, just didn’t care or didn’t know. Like the Stanford Prison Experiment, Zimbardo didn’t do anything to stop the abuses at the mock prison but allowed it. In both cases for humiliation, the guards forced the prisoners to strip naked for the guards’ enjoyment.
Limited rules were placed on both parties; however, due to the apparent mental branding by society there were an effortless transition to the traditional characteristics of each role. The mock prisoners lost the ability to understand that they were not convicted criminals. The subject prison guards mentally transitioned to actual correctional officers. Whereas the subject prisoners wanted to leave at any time and forgot that they could; many of the mock prison guards did not want to leave and thought of devious ways to antagonize. Although there was a lack of actual planning by the experimenters, the study still was ground breaking due to the empirical evidence retrieved
If I were Zimbardo, I would not have put myself into the study. I wouldn't have pushed to get the results I wanted to see and maybe if Zimbardo would have done that, he wouldn't have had to end the study early because he would still have been objective and would not have let the experiment get out of hand. Would I ever recreate the study? The study as we saw became dangerous for everyone participating. People were lost in their new personas.
The experiment was originally supposed to go on for fourteen days, it had to be stopped after just six days due to what happened to the student participants. The guards became abusive and the prisoners began to show signs of extreme stress and anxiety. Zimbardo states in his book The Lucifer Effect that, “Only a few people were able to resist the situational temptations to yield power and dominance while maintaining some semblance of morality and decency…” (Zimbardo). His experiment demonstrates the powerful role that the situation can play in human behavior. Since the guards were placed in a position of power, they began to behave in ways they normally would not act in their everyday lives/situations.
They roped their prisoners together and put bags over their heads and walked them all to a small room until the suspected people to break them out showed up. In the end it was all just a rumor. No one came to save the prisoners. The way that the guards fought back was making the prisoners do unethical and repulsive tasks. Their disgusting tasks ended up going as far as making the prisoners scrub the toilets with their own

Zimbardo designed the experiment in order to induce depersonalization, disorientation, and deindividualiztion in the volunteers. This experiment does not fit in with other work in the field of psychology because the conditions the participants were living in was inhumane and the experiment leaders didn’t realize this until someone outside of the experiment pointed it out; it was an extremely unethical experiment. This experiment left many of the participants emotionally traumatized and it is often compared to the Milgram experiment, which was performed a decade earlier. As a result of the layout of the experiment, Zimbardo found it difficult to keep conventional scientific controls in place and did not remain a neutral onlooker.
