He Was Doing An Election Experiment When A Woman Approached And Changed Everything

There are a wide variety of social experiments on Youtube that give us insight into how people really think.

From videos about sexual harassment to vandalism and stranger danger, it’s fascinating to see how others react when put in extreme versions of situations that happen every day. These experiments can also help restore your faith in humanity, because they remind us that people often do the right thing and step up to help others.

People experiencing homelessness are in a kind of limbo where they are simultaneously seen and not seen. When Ryan Hamilton of HammyTV asked people for money with a cardboard sign reading “$1 and I Won’t Vote Trump,” he thought he was getting insight into voters’ preferences this election season. What he got instead was a much more meaningful interaction.

When an actual homeless woman approached him, her generosity and heartbreaking story surprised everyone involved.

These People Stole From A Homeless Man. The Reactions Around It Will Shock You.

If you saw someone walking down the street, pass by a homeless person and instead of adding their contribution they actually STEAL the money, what would you do?

That’s the question asked by Model Pranksters in their latest social experiment. The pranksters took to the streets of New York City to find the answer…and the results are truly shocking. Especially when you compare the second half of the video to the first half. It really says a lot.

Social Experiment Shows Us Just How We Treat People In Need. It’s Eye-Opening.

Russia-based YouTubers Rakamakafo recently made a social experiment video to compare the difference between how Russian and American bystanders react when they see a complete stranger fall to the ground in pain.

They wanted to know if people from either country reacted differently, and if so, how much differently. The results were actually quite shocking when it comes to one of the countries. Watch and see which one.

Obviously there are a lot of different factors that could have contributed to the different reactions, from the location (touristy location vs busy city) to just one of the guys being a better actor and selling it more, but nonetheless that was an interesting little experiment that reminds us to always be more willing to lend a helping hand to our fellow man.
