A study was conducted to see whether participants would ignore a sign that said, "Elevator may stick between floors. Use the stairs." Those who used the stairs were said to be compliant, and those who used the elevator were said to be noncomplaiant. There were three possible situations, two of which involved confederates. A confederate is a person who is secretly working with the experimenter. In the first situation, there was no confederate. In the second situation, there was a compliant confederate (one who used the stairs), and in the third situation, there was a noncompliant confederate (one who used the elevator). The subjects tended to imitate the confederates. What more do you need to know about the study to determine whether the prescence or absence of a confederate causes a change in the compliance of subjects?
