Transcript of Bystander Effect
Should there be a law that requires bystanders to intervene? Why or why not?
What does this suggest about the bystander effect in the digital age?
Would the Good Samaritan law protect bystanders if they were required to help others and someone got hurt in the process?
Factors that Affect Conformity
See page 370 for chart
Group Size - Large groups have higher rates of conformity
ABC - "What Would You Do"
Group unanimity - conformity is high when everyone appears to agree
Public vs. Private - private = less conformity
self esteem - more self esteem = less conformity
difficult task - more difficult task = more conformity
member status - higher status person = more conformity to his/her view
On Christmas Day 2010, a UK woman announced on her Facebook page that she had taken many pills and would soon be dead. Some of her 1082 "friends" commented on her status, yet none called for help or went to check on her. Her body was discovered the next day.
Good Samaritan laws offer legal protection to people who give reasonable assistance to those who are injured, ill, in peril, or otherwise incapacitated. The protection is intended to reduce bystanders' hesitation to assist, for fear of being sued or prosecuted for unintentional injury or wrongful death. An example of such a law in common-law areas of Canada: a good Samaritan doctrine is a legal principle that prevents a rescuer who has voluntarily helped a victim in distress from being successfully sued for wrongdoing. Its purpose is to keep people from being reluctant to help a stranger in need for fear of legal repercussions should they make some mistake in treatment
