  • That the view held by the jury prior to deliberation was that held of the majority of jury members during discussions.

Question 5 of 10

Medal-premium 1

Nemeth said minority influence works because it...

Select one of the following:

  • Makes the majority feel sad because they were never accepted by their parents, and now they're not accepted by their peers :(

  • Makes the majority angry that someone would try and stand up to them like that.

  • Makes the majority question their own opinion.

Question 6 of 10

Medal-premium 1

Supporting Nemeth's case, the attribution theory supports why minorty influence may have an effect on jury members. Why does this happen?

Select one of the following:

  • Because members of the majority attribute the deep rooted conviction of the minority to situational factors, and so this cannot be convincing enough.

  • Because members attribute a minorities argument to deep rooted, convicted, dispositional factors as opposed to environmental ones, as they are arguing an unpopular case.

  • Because the majority are stupid, and I'm getting bored of writing answers that have to make sense so I can confuse you. Ugh.

Question 7 of 10

Medal-premium 1

Larger minorities have a greater effect on majorities, but what has a greater effect than this?

Select one of the following:

  • Fucking donkey shit. Literally fucking donkey shit. Picking up a piece of donkey shit, and fucking it.

  • A minority group of foreign people. Which they probably all are anyway, fucking immigrants.

  • An increasing number of minority members.

Question 8 of 10

Medal-premium 1

A jurors belief about the defendant can also have a great effect on the way a deliberation is given, and this would be okay if that belief was from evidence alone, but unfortunately it is often affected by stereotypes. What did Dixon find out about regional accents and stereotyping?

Select one of the following:

  • That when listening to a recording of two people talking, the participants were more likely to charge the person with a Birmingham accent as guilty, as opposed to a person with "well spoken" English.

  • That when participants were listening to rap they threw up and bled to death. Internally.

  • Fuck this shit I don't want to write this quiz any more, I hate revising so much.

Question 10 of 10

Medal-premium 1

What did fucking Pfiefer and Ogloff find? Fuck this shit I wanna die.

Select one of the following:
