4B Post Assessment
My Youth Group
Conformity, Authority, Obedience
Asch- We have a lot of group discussions and when one person answers, even if we disagree, we will all agree with that person in case what we were thinking was wrong.
Zimbardo- When we go on group trips the older members tend to take over the authority position over the younger kids. We never get violent, but we can be controlling.
Milgram- We always do what our pastor says. Even if he told us something we thought was weird we would follow it because he is a major authority figure and we trust him.
To avoid conflict at church camp, it is very common for the group to think as one whole and act to benefit the group.
There are games we play in the morning at the camp. Sometimes members of my group can get a little competitive against the other church groups present and will always pick someone to blame a loss on instead of behaving like a big family.
I have never stayed in the Barracks at Caswell, but the overall attitude toward it is very negative. As a church group, we all dislike this particular house from one or two people's experiences.
Fundamental Attribution Error
A lot of people get saved at Camp Caswell. At the time, the feeling is amazing and everyone else is just overjoyed for the person who is saved. If you try to explain the event to an outsider, however, it very difficult because, when you are not in the situation, you cannot fully understand the power of the moment.
