BYSTANDER BEHAVIOR 2
A Bystander is an individual who portrays an unacceptable behavior. It could be
something of great importance or less. It might happen once or repeatedly. All through the
bystander knows that his or her behavior is destructive or might cause a critical situation worsen.
Most of the people who show this kind of behavior, believe that someone else will come
in to stop them from the troubling situation. So they tend to do the same thing repeatedly.
Bystanders most of the time tends to force others to do things on their favor. They believe that,
someone will turn on them next if they give in (King & McGinnies, 2013).
Friend most of the time cover each others bad behavior. They keep the friendship despite
the fact that one of them does not like others behavior. In such situations majority of the people
just don’t know what to do to stop this kind of behavior (In Gullotta In Plant & In Evans, 2014).
An Individual may be hindered from intervening in an emergency, due to the presence of
a bystander. During emergencies involving threat or actual harm, bystanders are likely to be
affected. Ambiguity is a factor that affects whether or not one assists another in need. In such
situations involving bystanders the reaction time is slow, For example, a person crying out for
help. In environments where bystanders are not familiar with, they less likely get help in
emergency situations. The cohesiveness or friendship between individuals can greatly affect the
helping behavior of bystanders (King & McGinnies, 2013).
