Crowds Make You Behave Better

When we’re by ourselves it makes sense that we don’t behave perfectly. Maybe we leave dishes in the sink or pick our noses. The more people around the more we act socially acceptable. But those crowds might also have an influence on whether or not you help others as well. It’s called the Bystander Effect. An example used by VeryWellMind.com┬áis seeing a car crash happen and sometimes your urge to step in might be effected by how many people are around watching it. The idea being the more people around the more willing you are to step in and help.

Does this remind anyone else of of the finale of Seinfeld?
