Description/Abstract

An experiment will be conducted to observe the differences and similarities in helping behavior between males and females, students and non-students, and age groups. Two females will pretend to be struggling motorists in a safe yet busy parking lot located in two different locations; the square of Dahlonega and the Wal-Mart parking lot. The females will be looking into the open hood of their car while two other females judge outsiders’ reactions from afar. The purpose of the experiment is to discover which demographics are represented in the variety of participants who stop to help the distressed motorists. The hypothesis is non- student males. Results will show in general knowledge of vehicles, experience due to age and gender. [Poster]
