We show more compassion for THESE than our fellow humans
We show more compassion for THESE than our fellow humans

Choose. You hear three stories about a beating. One is an adult. One is a toddler. One is a dog. Who do you feel worse for? In a recent study, people felt worse for the dog and yes – the toddler ranked right up there too. But sympathy for our fellow adult human being came in last.

Are we uncaring, and unfeeling towards our fellow man or woman? No, not really. The results come from our human instinct to be “protectors” and we seem to find babies and dogs far more vulnerable than adults and consequently feel worse when something happens to them because in our minds they were not capable of defending themselves.

So, I guess if you’re an adultĀ getting mugged most of us will turn a blind eye. But if you’re a baby or a dog and someone is trying to take your wallet – well that’s entirely different. Yeah, thats right… in this particular case babies and dogs have wallets. Be nice and take care of one another. It’s a tough world out there.
