Study Shows Cooperation Among Strangers Is Increasing

You've probably heard it before. Whether it's about holding a door, helping locate a lost item or providing strangers with directions, you've encountered the idea that people aren't as helpful as they once were. Is there any truth to this idea, despite its pervasiveness? Denying the perception that people today aren't as willing to assist one another, a study published shows that the inclination to cooperate has slightly increased among strangers in the U.S. in the years since the 1950s. This slight increase, the authors say, could indicate an improvement in people's abilities to address global problems, such as pandemics and climate change. (DiscoverMagazine)
