Crtisism on Methodology
Milgram Experiment has been controversial since laboratory experiment may not reflect experimenters' actual behaviours:
- >> Situational factors affecting the actual behaviours, such as a trust or cooperative with the researcher or a goodwill to show morally right (Levitt and List, 2007).
- >> Motivations of shown behaviours can be misinterpreted (Shang and Croson, 2009)
>>Alternatively, a social experiment, or named as field experiment, is considered being able to reveal more behavioural truths (Levitt and List, 2007).
>> What people answered may not be what they will do (Youtube, 2015a).
