Can you recall the good feeling you had when someone carried your bulky package, held a heavy door, or allowed you to cut ahead of a long line? In a world of chaos, favors granted by perfect strangers remind us that social graces are still well and thriving. But we humans are variable creatures, and a host of conditions influence whether or not we will choose to render aid to others. Some mitigating factors include our relationship to the afflicted, our mood, or even the weather. A needy person's age also influences our generosity.
Then there are the other, more subtle facilitators or inhibitors that bring out the best or worst in us. If we have a good self-image and if we perceive ourselves as helpful, it's more likely that we will extend a helping hand. We're less likely to help if others nearby are watching than if we are alone or if there is a high noise level nearby, as on a subway or near a churning lawn mower.
Below are some questions that will gauge your thoughtfulness. Respond "Yes" or "No" to each one. Be honest!
