Social psychologists John Darley and Daniel Batson wanted to know why people help in some situations but not others. They decided to study one allegedly charitable group: seminary students training to become priests. The researchers then randomly assigned the students to one of two conditions. They were expecting you a few minutes ago. Each student walked alone to the building where he would deliver the sermon.

On the way, the student encountered a man slumped in a doorway with his eyes closed, coughing and moaning, clearly in distress. In other words, being in a hurry can lead even a seminary student with the Good Samaritan on the mind to ignore a person in distress. When pressed for time, people must choose between helping and meeting other goals.

But when people are not hurried, they can pursue multiple goals, in order of importance. In addition, people with time to spare can broaden their attention and notice more details about their environments. Even seminary students benefited from slowing down.

Likewise, reducing time pressure will likely help most people pay attention to their surroundings and respond more readily to others in need. Darley, J. SPARQ relies on grants and donations.

Darley and Batson: Samaritan Study overview

Pssst… we can write an original essay just for you. These students were tasked with preparing a message on the Bible story about the Good Samaritan and then convinced that they were under a certain time constraint, either hurried or unhurried. The experimenter then observed how many people from these groups would stop to help a stranger clearly in need when they were on their way to deliver the message. This experiment fits into a broader field of social psychology, the study of helping behavior. This hypothesis examines how this behavior is changed when different levels of hurriedness are imposed on a subject. Understanding the implications of being in a rush or constant busyness on others in society can help explain some of the reasoning why people interact in the ways they do. The results of this hypothesis may even give insights into how homeless people and others in need are treated in contexts such as cities, environments in which the people interacting are generally more hurried or busy.

Test of Samaritan Parable: Who Helps the Helpless?

In the Gospel according to Luke, Jesus tells the parable of a priest and a Levite who see a man sorely needing help and pass by on the other side of the road, and of a Samaritan who stops and helps the victim. Two psychologists in Princeton recently restaged the event—Updated, carefully observed, even photographed —not on the road from Jerusalem to Jericho but just off Washington Road between Princeton University's Green Hall and Green Hall Annex. John M. Darley, who teaches psychology at the university, and C. Daniel Batson, a doctor of theology doing graduate work in psychology there while teaching at the Princeton Theological Seminary, had recruited 40 volunteers from the seminary. Explaining that they were studying the vocational placement of seminarians, Dr.
