Socialisation the way we are raised to behave and the things we are taught to accept as normal
Buffer something that creates distance between the teacher and learner (e.g a wall or another person administering the shocks)
Deindividuation the state of losing our sense of individuality and becoming less aware of our own responsibility for our actions
Anonymous being able to keep our identity hidden
Mundane realism an everyday situation that is life-like and not artificial
Social loafing putting less effort into doing something when you are with others doing the same thing
Culture a group of people (usually living in one place) who share similar customs, beliefs and behaviour.
Diffusion of responsibility in a group of people there is less need for the individual to act because someone else who is present could also do something
Empathy being able to put yourself in someone else's position psychologically and understand how that person is feeling
