Many people have also put nominal data or primary data however nominal data is a level of measurement and not a kind of data? Unsure, the first few questions for social were confusing for everyone it seems.

What will happen in each condition? How can you overcome the limitations of the design used? Many people have also said to use a repeated measures or patched pairs design to minimise extraneous variables.

I think standardisation may also be acceptable here as an independent measures design was used and this can be used to minimise extraneous variables also.

Chi squared test was used, apart from levels of measurement, give two reasons why it was used 2 marks Used because it was independent groups and they were looking for a difference. Although the difference was given in the stem, it asked not to talk about nominal data as that is a level of measurement 5.

Using the degrees of freedom table, is data from this experiment significant? Discuss the authoritarian personality as an explanation for obedience 8 marks The authoritarian personality was found by adorno who said it had certain characteristics, these would include conventional attitudes towards sex, race and gender.

They believe we need strong leaders to enforce traditional values and are extremely loyal and submissive to authority. This type of personality was found to be as a result of harsh parenting.

This study lacks ecological validity since this situation would not happen in real life, however is a lab conducted experiment which means less participant variables. Other factors could affect the accuracy of recall such as the difficulty of trigrams showed which is considered an extraneous variable. His aim was to see if people would alter information when give unfamiliar information. His method was to tell the story "war of the ghosts" to participants and asked them to recall throughout the weeks.

Results show that participants altered part about ghosts, and each time they recalled , the story became less accurate. This study concluded that when given unfamiliar information we tend to alter it to fit our belief and understanding. This study can't be generalized since only university students were used as participants. This has practical applications such as the accuracy of eye witness testimonies.
