Bystander Effect - people watch child being abducted
When there’s only one person around in a situation, they’re much more likely to lend assistance to people in need, whether it’s to help pick up something they’re dropped or something more important like warn them they’re about to step into traffic, etc.
When there’s a group of people, though, no one acts. They all expect someone else will do it, so no one volunteers or pauses.
I’ll post more on this later, there are a million aspects and examples.
this was always interesting to me
