    reminds me to the behaviour of the most people regarding 9/11 .. oh, accepted statesman say that this was this and that way, well then it was this and that way, of course.

    @TimdeJong This video simply points out that people tend to conform. Conformity is calming and often makes one feel safe, whereas individuality and breaking free of the whole often makes one feel vulnerable and isolated. Your interpretation of the video as bulshit and theory that no one will ever react to antying in a group demonstrates an extreme lack of rational and critical thinking.

    @TimdeJong The video clearly states that the experiment was repeated multiple times. Of course there will be variables. But if you listen the narrator uses language such as "the majority of people" and "often". Of course people react differently. But as a whole people tended to conform.

    The bystander effect doesn't exist. The reality is, no one ever wants to help. You just have to when fewer people are around or you're made to be the giant dick that didn't do anything.

    This is called the, "Crap, I have to help someone or look like a huge ass" effect.

    When the subject looks around he sees that no one else gives a damn either and sighs a breath of relief that he is no longer responsible and can go back to playing tetris.

    @webtruth105 What you described is a REASON for the bystander effect. You just gave another explanation for it.

    @webtruth105 Not necessarily. When the test subject hears the man falling he took interest in it, as if he was ready to act- he even put his hands on the arm rest and almost got up. However when he noticed how the two other individuals didn't respond he went back to what he was doing before. I'm pretty sure he was either intimidated- so he was scared to act by himself- or else he figured the person falling was a planned or normal event and the others knew this and therefore he didn't act.

    This is true. I was a passenger on a train with maybe 10 passengers in my carriage. A lady in a wheelchair using a metal ramp to board the train went over its edge and the wheelchair tipped over and she came out. It made a large crash and she squeeled as she got thrown out of the chair. I remember sitting there facing everyone else; no one got up to help, they looked around or raised their heads to sticky beak but the group majority seemed to endorse the response.

    Aside from the simple fact that we posses the self control to stop our negative thought patterns, psychology has its roots in 100% solid evil. To treat "hysteria", a made up disease with a "symptom" of not wanting to have sex, a disease which does not "exist" anymore, doctor's actually invented the dildo and caused forced over stimulation orgasms in married women. Psychology is not science. It has been responsible for thousands of deaths through experimental lobotomy. Please Research.

    subject 1 was female, subject 2 was male. Did they take that into account?

    it's in our biology: before language; if we didn't conform, we would've been some tiger's prey. Simple, not evil

    Yeah a man falling off a 5 foot ladder deeply saddens me too.

    They should try something more gripping, there has been plenty of times where someone would fall and I wouldn't even bother because it's not like they fell off a bridge.

    I found that really interesting. I stumbled upon this because my best mate came to be a lady-magnet He went from a nobody into being awesome. He pretended he failed to realize. Then he told me while he was wasted. He revealed he learned from the Jake Ayres Master Attraction Formula. Google it if you'd like to learn about it… He's dating a sexy chick…

    My ugly brother was able to make the most incredible stripper I’ve ever seen fall for him because he cheated by using the Cupid Love System (search in Google). I wish I was joyful for him but I dream a beautiful person would fall for me like that. I am extremely envious. Does that mean I’m a horrible individual?

    Keep in mind, the most important thing to most people is personal convenience.  That's why they park in handicapped spots, ignore common courtesies, and can be incredibly inconsiderate.

    Its not convenience at all…. Its simply that most people look for others to tell them what to think and act. Once your conscious of peoples subconscious it is quite straight forward. People with an inner core confidence don't rely on group think, and vice versa. The reason people tend to help when alone is simply because people won't be taking direction from anyone else, therefore responsibility becomes personal

    Is this an re-enactment of an experiment by Darly and Latané or by Clarke and Word?

    Hence, people are easily manipulated by their environment.
