Abstract

It is hypothesized that when asked to help, students who are primed with helping will be more likely to help than students who are primed with success. Students will complete a series of irrelevant tasks for extra credit, primed with a survey on attitudes towards helping or success, and then will be asked to complete an additional task to aid the researcher, which is not for credit. The treatment will be randomly assigned and the dependent variable will be measured by whether or not the participants agree to help. University students will participate in this study, and it is expected that correlations will be made.
