Have you ever wondered why so many bystanders seemingly ignore a person in need or drive past an accident without stopping to help? Rendering aid or intervening in a violent event is a personal choice; however, when forced to use our gun to defend ourselves or in need of emergency care, understanding this effect may save your life.
To override the effect of Pluralistic Ignorance and Social Proof we need to ask/assign specific persons for each task (call the police, call an ambulance, etc.).
In our seminars we cover this in great detail. We need witnesses and bystanders to understand the truth for both physical security and legal purposes.
Here is a link to a more in-depth look at this pluralistic ignorance.
