The embarrassed bystander: Embarrassability and the inhibition of helping. How to Overcome the Bystander Effect. Psychologists have long been interested in exactly why and when we help other people.

In many cases, people feel that since there are other people around, surely someone else will leap into action.1 While the bystander effect can have a negative impact on prosocial behavior, altruism and heroism, researchers have identified a number of different factors that can help people overcome this tendency and increase the likelihood that they will engage in helping behaviors.2 Some of these include: Witnessing Helping Behavior Sometimes just seeing other people doing something kind or helpful makes us more willing to help others.

Three friends on a high-speed train from Paris to Amsterdam helped stop a gunman wielding an AK-47. This past spring, an Army captain in North Carolina pulled a couple to safety after a fiery car crash. Were these men instinctively courageous, or had they learned to be? The Army captain (aptly wearing a Captain America T-shirt) credited his military training for knowing what to do and remaining calm. These heroes are dramatic examples. And this conundrum is not limited to thwarting terrorism or physically saving someone. But we often look the other way, like the priest and Levite in the Good Samaritan parable. Bystander effect.

Research has shown that, even in an emergency, a bystander is less likely to extend help when he or she is in the real or imagined presence of others than when he or she is alone.

This model is also intended to offer a counterargument to the proposition that people do not help in emergencies simply because they become apathetic.

Subject Competence and Minimization of the Bystander Effect - Cramer - 1988 - Journal of Applied Social Psychology. More bystanders responding to CPR incidents thanks to 3 public health interventions: Study, Singapore News.
SINGAPORE - A study has found that three measures, when applied together, have more than doubled the likelihood of bystanders performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on cardiac arrest victims in Singapore. Dispatch-assisted CPR, CPR and automated external defibrillator training, and the Singapore Civil Defence Force's myResponder app were found to have increased the responses of bystanders giving life-saving assistance to heart attack victims before paramedics attended to them. Dispatch-assisted CPR refers to CPR that is administered under the guidance of a first responder, such as a paramedic who may, through a phone call, assess the situation and give instructions to a bystander, who then performs CPR.
The study was conducted by researchers at the Duke-NUS Medical School, Duke University, and several organisations here, and published in August. The likelihood of a victim's survival also increased more than threefold, compared with no intervention, when all three aids were adopted.

Myanmar, Indonesia and Kenya turned out to be among the most charitable countries, even though they have a huge number of their populations living below the poverty line. Being poor does not stop one from being generous. Wealthy countries such as the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and the United Arab Emirates also feature in the top 10. Myanmar, the top country for four years in a row, has a poor human rights record, in part because of its treatment of the Rohingya Muslims. Singapore, ranked 30, is behind Indonesia (2), Myanmar (1) and Thailand (15), but streets ahead of Cambodia (134), Vietnam (116) and the Philippines (54) in Asean.
