Bystander Effect - What is the Bystander Effect What is the Bystander Effect? The term bystander effect refers to the phenomenon in which the greater the number of people present, the less likely people are to help a person in distress. When an emergency situation occurs, observers are more likely to take action if there are few or no other witnesses. In a series of classic studies, researchers Bibb Latane and John Darley (1) found that the amount of time it takes the participant to take action and seek help varies depending on how many other observers are in the room. As the participants sat filling out questionnaires, smoke began to fill the room. Example of the Bystander Effect The most frequently cited example of the bystander effect in introductory psychology textbooks is the brutal murder of a young woman named Catherine "Kitty" Genovese. Despite Genovese’s repeated calls for help, none of the dozen or so people in the nearby apartment building who heard her cries called police to report the incident. Suggested Readings: Listen:

The Anatomy Of A Thank You Note – Krrb’s Guide To Expressing Gratitude With Style ~ Krrb Blog First off, if you can get your hands on a kid who is just learning to write and then convince said kid to write (or make a good go at writing) "Thanks" on a piece of paper that you can put into an envelope and send, you are golden. Your job is done. Who is not going to be touched by a child's early attempts at writing? Nothing says thank you like a note written by a 4 year old. But for those who don’t have the monk-like patience it takes to elicit the above pictured type of work from a pre-schooler, there is hope. You too, can produce thank you notes that would make your grandparents proud and that would bring a smile to even the most jaded of faces.

INFJ Personality Profile By Dr. A.J. Drenth INFJs are “old souls.” Many grow up feeling wiser than would be predicted by their chronological age. Because of their strength of intuition (and commensurate detachment from physical reality), many INFJs report feeling like aliens in the world. INFJs see two people in everyone. To fully understand INFJs, it is necessary to recognize the full implications of their dominant function, Ni, being a Perceiving function. INFJs also enjoy listening to music, watching movies and television, and engaging with people. A signature feature of INFJs (and INTJs) is a deep concern for quality. While Se attends the appearance of things, Ni is concerned with their deeper qualities and substantiveness…While INJs are to some extent concerned with appearances, they are more attuned to the underlying quality and craftsmanship of things…ensuring that things are substantive, thoughtfully-crafted, and otherwise amenable to their Ni-Se tastes.

11 Amazing Thank You Notes From Famous People After a short stint in the New York theater world, comedienne Carol Burnett landed a job as a regular on The Garry Moore Show in 1959. She caught the attention of CBS executives, who offered her her own series in 1967. With her husband Joe Hamilton at the helm, Burnett broke new ground as the first female host of a TV variety show. The Carol Burnett Show ran for 11 seasons and earned a handful of Emmy Awards in the process. To celebrate the legendary comedienne's 85th birthday, here are some fun facts about the show and the folks who made it so side-splittingly hilarious. As Carol Burnett painfully recalled later in life, whenever she’d expressed an interest in a career in the theater as a teen, her mother would always dissuade her and recommend that she would have better luck studying to become a writer. As she was nearing graduation from UCLA, Burnett and several fellow drama students were invited to a departing professor’s house to perform at his bon voyage party.
What is Mensa? | Mensa International Curiosity Is as Important as Intelligence - Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic by Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic | 11:00 AM August 27, 2014 There seems to be wide support for the idea that we are living in an “age of complexity”, which implies that the world has never been more intricate. This idea is based on the rapid pace of technological changes, and the vast amount of information that we are generating (the two are related). Yet consider that philosophers like Leibniz (17th century) and Diderot (18th century) were already complaining about information overload. In any event, the relative complexity of different eras is of little matter to the person who is simply struggling to cope with it in everyday life. 1. Complex environments are richer in information, which creates more cognitive load and demands more brainpower or deliberate thinking from us; we cannot navigate them in autopilot (or Kahneman’s system 1 thinking). 2) EQ: EQ stands for emotional quotient and concerns our ability to perceive, control, and express emotions.

Absolute Time, Relative Experience | Who is the Man with the Name that Rhymes? It's been a while since another post. There are many topics that I have cached that I'd like to write on. If it weren't for the troubling aspect of so many things eating at my free time, you'd see more posts on here. I'm not sure there are many readers on here anyway, I've notice the traffic has slowed down to very little these days. Partly because Google hasn't been indexing the site correctly which I fixed not too long ago. I'm sure the sporadic updates are another reason. Lately, an intriguing concept for me has been time. In physics, time is a duration between 2 events or physical states. Psychologically, however, time is a different creature. The brain isn't like a clock. The easiest way to explain temporal resolution is to compare to something like a video camera. But the brain isn't like a video camera either. So how does that relate back to feeling of time perception? Compare that to the last day of high school. This effect isn't just related to new experiences.
