  • Lucy,
    I found your post very interesting, and I love that you are talking about this topic. I have had two dogs in the past who lived a pretty old age, one outlived the other, but eventually both of them got to the point where it was obvious they were suffering. For both of their situations my parents made the decision to have them put down in…Read More

    • I think the bystander effect is very prevalent in our society. We think that someone else may step in, so we don’t have to. I hope that people can become more aware of others’ emotions and speak up for what is right.

    • Mason,
      I really liked how you turned the bystander effect, something usually referred to in situations dealing with crime, into something that effects us all, global warming. It is a topic that I wouldn’t have originally put under the category of bystander effect, but it makes sense. We haven’t don’t much to change our environment and change the way we live, yet we see the consequences of these actions daily. http://sites.psu.edu/aspsy/2016/03/30/the-bystander-effects-big-effect/ this article expands the idea of the bystander effect to our world today, not just specific situations.

    • Mason,
      I really enjoyed your post. I remember studying the bystander effect in psychology but think you explained it in a much more straightforward and meaningful way. I thought it was productive that you started off with explaining what the bystander effect and social influence was, and even better when you gave a day to day example. I think the bystander effect affects us more than we would like to admit sometimes. You may find this article interesting: http://www.inquiriesjournal.com/articles/1493/a-summary-of-the-bystander-effect-historical-development-and-relevance-in-the-digital-age.

    • What a fascinating topic Chloe. I never really considered the wage gap in the medical felid, let alone the reason for it. With both men and women getting the same amount of education and experience in med school, it seems absolutely crazy that theres a $20,000 gap. It was interesting to see the connection between lower paying professions within medicine were the same professions that women mostly go into. I wonder, are there any women in medicine fighting for same pay?

  • Kadijah,
    I liked your story about how you had a difficult time deciding which color of vans to get. I think it has sort of an underlying message, whether it was intentional or not, that sometimes we make decisions and regret them later on. And your solution to this was to ‘buy both pair’ or try out each solution which I think is a good message!
