To sum up, there are three types of conformity (internalisation, identification and compliance) and 2 explanations for conformity (Informational social influence – ISI and Normative social influence – NSI). In the film “12 Angry Men” we can see the use of all of them. Some of the juror’s judgements are influenced by their personal experiences. One of the jurors was strongly influenced by the stereothype of a boy from “bad crowd” and he belived that every person from that environment is the same.
