The Mind of the Bystander

The social paralysis described by the bystander effect has implications for how we behave not only on city streets filled with strangers, but any place where we work or socialize. When individuals relinquish responsibility for addressing a problem, the potential negative outcomes are wide-ranging—from minor household issues that housemates collectively avoid dealing with to violence and abuse that go unchecked. Some efforts have been made, including on college campuses, to encourage people to be “active bystanders” and fight the urge to step aside when someone is in trouble.
