-how much of what we learn is from others?
-Watxhing violence reduces aggression.
-Expieramented on children from 3-5.
-Adult beat up a doll.
-Wanted to see what the child would do after watching the adult
Watching violence purges us from it
Bandura used children
They had 2 groups one with an aggressive mentor and a passive mentor
They ones with the aggressive mentors beat up the doll and copied what they seen.
The closest resemblance is when the childs mentor is the same sex
-Albert wants to see how watching people influences others.
-this experiment was over aggression
-Depending on their role model and the gender of the child effected the response
-every child that watched the adult beat the dumby they did it identically to them
-it was more likely to work if the role model was the same gender as the child
Group of kids age 3-5 are set to witness a harmful and brutal beating of a doll.
The children is put in a room with the doll and a lot of toys
The children copied the actions they saw of the adult and the doll
Kids watching the adult of same sex would copy the actions more than the opposite sex
Children would copy what they see on tv or in person
sees aggression, shows aggression
watches adults and mimics them
beats the doll
shows aggressive faces
whatever the children saw they did
if someone was gentle, so was the child
*experimented on small children 3-5
*kids viciously beat a doll
*use hammer as a weapon
*actions observed from adult
- Young children of both sexes are placed into a room filled with toys with an adult stranger.
- The study is testing how much do we do and feel is taught by others and how far our behavior changes just viewing someone do violent or non-violent.
- The adult, after a few minutes, would suddenly attack the BoBo Doll, kicking and screaming.
- The closet imitations were committed by adults and children of the same sex.
- Another group that viewed an adult playing nicely followed them and did the same. Whatever the adult does the children follow.
- Albert Bandura designed an experiment to test if humans express more aggression when exposed to it
- The experiment was conducted on children, as they have had less influence on them
- The child is put in a room full of toys that they cannot play with, with an adult, after some time the adult beats on an inflatable doll for about 10 minutes
- There was also a group that were shown an adult being nice to the doll
- The results showed that when shown aggression, the children are more likely to be aggressive, when showed compassion, they are much less likely to show aggression
*when the man hit the doll the kids began hitting the doll
*he experimented on children aged three to five
*the children do almost exactly the came thing
*what the children saw the children did
*he re-ran the experiment with a tv
It was formerly believed that watching violence purged us of violent feelings.
Children were showed adults beating up the Bobo Doll to see if they'd follow.
They did. Monkey see, mokey do.
Kids who watched adults play gently played gently as well.
This experiment happened around the time that TVs were popularized.
-Children watch adults play with a BoBo Doll, of the same and opposite sex
-Children who watch adults attack the doll did the same, especially from the same sex
-Those who watched adults act kind with the doll did the same as well
-What the children saw the children did
-This was unexpected, but demonstrated that when you see someone do something violent you immitate it
-Bandura created the Bobo Doll experiment to see how much we do is caused by what we see other people do. (aggression)
-Bandura used kids aged 3-5
-He placed the kids in a room with an adult
-1 kid was with 1 adult and did everything the adult did. (gentle adult-gentle kid) (aggressive adult-aggressive kid)
-Usually when the kid was the same sex as the adult the results were higher in relationship.
- The adult attacked the doll.
- The child replicated what the adult did.
- The closes replication was when the child watch the adult of the same sex.
- what the children saw the children did
- A group of children watched an adult play nicely with a doll, so the children also played nicely with the doll.
- watching violence purges us
- adult beat the bobo doll
- child copies adult
- you see violence, you imitate it
- children watched cartoons, also did as they saw
The BoBo doll - Bandura
- Watson said that behavior is learned
- Kids were separated into different groups, one of them were in a room with an adult playing violently with the BoBo doll, one were nice and calm and the last one didn't do much with the doll at all
- The kids who saw the violent adult, played violently with the doll as well
- The kids mostly followed the actions of the adult of the same gender
- Doesn't matter if the kids saw a cartoon or a real human being, they still copied their behavior
- The main reason was to see if we learned things from other humans.
- An adult was left in the room with something called a bobo doll.
- After a while the adult would leave and the child would beat the doll up.
- One of the kids was beat the doll with a hammer after the adult left.
- He tried it with children watching tv that showed violence and the children acted as the movie did.
- Believed that the way that children act is based off of what they see
- Did the study on children from age 3 - 5
- The children did what they seen because they thought that was the right thing to do
- When they seen good behavior the displayed good behavior , when they seen aggressive behavior they were aggressive
- They tend to respond more to the same sex
1. Bandura wanted to see just how influencial a child can really be.
2. Bandura separated kids in three groups. Each child is tested individually though.
3. In the control group the kids aren't put with an adult. In group 2, the kids are put with an adult who abuses a bobo doll. In group 3, the kids are put with a calm adult,
4. The kids in the control group and group 3 showed less violent behavior than kids in group two.
-kids tend to copy their mentor
-experiment was done on kids 3-5
-boys tend to be worse than girls
-boys have a 3 times the chance to be violent
-boys are more likely to to be bad if their rolemodel is a male
