A cross-cultural study of obedience
Using Milgram’s paradigm, 48 Jordanian college students were tested for obedience. It was found that the experimental subjects gave significantly more shocks than the control subjects. Unlike the experimental subjects, the control subjects were free to either give or not give shock. There was no difference in obedience rate between male and female subjects. In terms of overobedience, 62.5% of the experimental and 12.5 of the control subjects continued to deliver shock to the end of the shock scale.
