This study lack ecological validity and therefore the findings cannot be generalised to the entire population. The sample size used in this study is far too small for findings to be generalised. Milgram’s study involved only white American male participants, and therefore, his findings cannot be generalised to females or males in other cultures. Asch’s study has been criticised for its lack of internal validity; demand characteristics may have affected his findings. Mary Ainsworth’s Strange Situation is just that, strange, and so it may have little relevance to everyday life (lacks ecological validity).

When in doubt, ramble on about validity.
