19 5 REASONS WE MAY NOT INTERFERE Diffusion of Responsibility: More likely to help if you are by yourself; less likely to help when more people are around.

20 5 REASONS WE MAY NOT INTERFERE Evaluation Apprehension: Risk of embarrassment if the situation turns out to NOT be an emergency.

21 5 REASONS WE MAY NOT INTERFERE Pluralistic Ignorance: If we are not sure the situation is an emergency, we will look at others. If they do not act concerned, we presume there is no emergency.

22 5 REASONS WE MAY NOT INTERFERE Cause of Misfortune: This is victim- blaming. If we believe that the person being harmed put themselves in the vulnerable position, we believe that it is their fault for the misfortune that happens to them.

23 5 REASONS WE MAY NOT INTERFERE Helping Model: If there is nobody around to model behaviors of assistance, we are less likely to know what to do. On the other hand, if others do so, we are more likely to aid and assist.
