    This is simply a statistical fluke out of a very small sample.

    So it's not about male or female, is it?

    Anyway, humans are social creatures, their behavior would change according to the characteristics of the social settings they're in, you have to ask that "people just don't care" where, how & under what internal and external circumstances?

    As for the Kitty Genovese case, read the unbiased writing at Wikipedia, its conclusion in the "Public Reaction".

    Interesting experiment but I believe an invalid conclusion. This is like flipping a coin 3 times and concluding that it lands on heads more than tails because it landed on heads twice.

    Also, it seems that we are missing at least 2 more experiments:
    1. Females asking males to watch their items
    2. Males asking females to watch their items

    Very well perfomed in any case.

    Basic Military Training

    1. I will guard everything within the limits of my post and quit my post only when properly relieved.

    2. I will obey my special orders and perform all of my duties in a military manner.

    3. I will report violations of my special orders, emergencies, and anything not covered in my instructions to the commander of the relief.

    that is very bias not enough research and and the sample size is to small
    are you saying that all female and male male are that way
    or are u just refering to that particular school
    from the end credits i can tell the majority of u are girls and thats wats makes it bias
    u can't make assumptions like that and false statistics u can get sued

    This study does not show altruism, it shows hidden racist fears. Notice that the only time they immediately warned someone was when it was the black person telling them to watch their stuff. When it's a black person telling you to watch your stuff, you are more likely to follow through out of stereotypical fear.

    And notice that when a black person came to use the stuff, no one wants to say anything out of fear. But when it's a harmless white girl, they're not afraid.

    Also, with the white guy coming to use the white girls laptop, it looked like he was just her friend using it. He seemed relaxed, comfortable and wasn't nervous and looking around.

    Ohh *snap*
    You got me with the extra "o".
    I feel so bad for sharring my opinion now.
    Btw – That was sarcasm. Don't flame me because of my opinion. If you have too, then flame me because of my disliking to this video without any arguments of why.

    I admit my comment could have been more constructive. I would understand your point better though if it was never to bash a university like that regardless of the typo.
    But the typo i sincerely don't regret.

    i think it also depends not only on who that person is, but also who asks, im sure it would be more accurate if you had situations for both ( as the 5 female and 5 male here ) where both males and females were asks to safegaurd

    "Lets try to see how many people have the balls to say that this places has been taken" That is what the experiment is about. Not as interesting as you made it sound.

    @koncron still, jumping to conclusions with n=5 is simply too much, no matter what discipline.

    HAHAHAHA! i think NOT. This is still inconclusive. Why would a man trust another man he doesn't know to take observation of his belongings. Why would a man trust a women to attend to his belongings… the probablilities are all screwy louie
