This is an amazing experiment in the history of psychology, the significance of it can not be underestimated. After 50 years of discussion I still don't think we are close to fully understanding all of the ramifications from its results. I hope people here who have not heard of it before will take some time to consider it. Tmtoulouse 02:00, 27 April 2007 (EDT)

The main ramification I've taken from is that some people will do ANYTHING if an Authority Figure tells them to. --Gulik2 02:03, 27 April 2007 (EDT)
"Some"? Thats the problem, EVERY SINGLE PERSON went to 300 volts, way past the moment of the persons distress. Well over half went all the way. Its easy to look back and say you would walk out. But chances are you would not have. Tmtoulouse 02:05, 27 April 2007 (EDT)

Let us not forget that it isn't just an authoritative figure that can cause people to do harm to others. These people were paid, err, I mean compensated. Money is a very strong motivator indeed and many people might just find themselves doing things they may not normally do, if given enough "Compensation". --Quigs 00:18, 29 March 2008 (EDT)
