It's called the bystander effect, essentially it's that the larger the crowd of people, the less someone feels obligated to help. People always feel like someone else there is going to do the job. This isn't common to China, this happens everywhere.

Thank you!

Here's a great example of it. The man was stabbed while trying to prevent a mugging, and the women he helped just ran away. To add on to this, 25 people passed as opposed to 18, and nobody ended up helping him until the paramedics came, as opposed to someone helping that chinese 2 year old. Did i mention this is in America?

In what region of China is it best to live in if you are a:
A) Peasant
B) Person with average income
C) Person with substantially high income ?

A) If you are a peasant you will usually live in the countryside. All

of a peasant's income is from the land.

B) People in China  with average income usually live in cities. They have their own houses and cars. But they breath dirty air, eat unhealthy food and work under great pressures.

C) The rich live in the suburb of the city, they have big villas, drive nice cars.

There aren't words to describe how ignorant and arrogant you sound for thinking that your country (especially one as unstable as Saudi Arabia) doesn't have this problem, and basing this thought on one situation you saw. Seriously, just because it doesn't make the news, doesn't mean it doesn't happen. So far we have only listed situations in China and America, that doesn't mean i can go ahead and say that every other country in the world's people don't follow a proven human reaction.

I asked because I was curious about something.  During the last olympics, a lot of the Chinese people that I saw who were asked the same question did not say "Yao Ming."  I'm not trying to say that you should see him as your favorite, if you really do have a favorite, I just find it a curious thing that a lot don't label him as their favorite.  It's just counter intuitive for me.
