Conformity & Obedience in the real world

Conformity and Obedience can be seen all around us…

The picture here clearly shows identification as the police officers are showing authsimply and being firm simply because that is their role. It may also link to the evidence showing that uniform has an effect on people’s behaviour and how others are obedient to them.

We can see clear situational factors in obedience here as the man on the floor is responding obediently because in the situation the police officers have legitimate authority over the civilian. Whether or not he is guilty of a crime.
