The importance of appearances experiment#外貌有多重要#值得反思的社會實驗 (中文字幕)

當你在需要人們幫助的時候,最好先祈禱自已那時打扮得光鮮亮麗!?這項由法國網友所進行的社會實驗值得你我的深思。
路人對看似街友的男子視而不見

路人對看似街友的男子視而不見

一部由YouTube使用者norniTube上傳名為"外貌有多重要(The Importance of Appearances)"的影片,證明我們都有可能在一念之間以貌取人。

在這令人心碎的社會實驗中,一名男子裝扮成街友在法國巴黎繁忙的街道上不支倒地。數十人從旁經過,卻沒有一位願意伸出援手。接著,一名身穿西裝的男子在完全相同的地方倒下,表現出生病的模樣,所有人卻都馬上義不容辭。

該影片表示“街友”躺在街上超過五分鐘都沒有任何人提供援助。一些路​​人停下來認真看了一下,仍然冷眼旁觀。

而相對於另一個西裝男,他甚至不需要呼救就有數人趕到他身旁關切。

雖然這項"實驗"結果無法保證完全準確,它仍然顯示出人性中微妙且令人不愉快的一面。

這部影片也特別提到2008年的一場悲劇事件,一名女士在紐約市一間醫院的候診室病倒,醫院職員坐視不管長達45分鐘。

影片中某一段出現一段字幕"假如那個人是你?",一個簡單卻令人不寒而慄的問題,當你想到我們所有人都可能會在某天走上命運的終點,只因為人們以貌取人的一眼。

人們對西裝男子幾乎毫不遲疑伸出援手

A video titled “The Importance of Appearances," by YouTube user norniTube, proves that we all may be too quick to judge a book by its cover.

In a heartbreaking social experiment, a man dressed as a homeless person falls down in a busy street in Paris, France. Dozens of people pass by him, no one offering a hand. Then, a person dressed in a suit falls in the exact same location, appearing to be sick, and everyone jumps to his aid.

The video claims the “homeless" man was lying on the street for more than five minutes without anyone offering help. Some of the passers-by stop to take a second look, but still do nothing.

On the other hand, the man in a suit doesn’t even need to cry for help before several people hurry to his side.

While the “experiment" can’t be 100% validated, it still shows an interesting, and unpleasant, side of human nature.

The video also highlights an incident from 2008, when a woman collapsed in a waiting room of a New York City hospital, and the staff ignored her for 45 minutes.

At one point in the video, a caption simply asks: “What if it was you?" A chilling thought considering any one of us could one day be on the wrong end of a snap judgement.

關於2008年的事件:

這名牙買加裔女子格林在前一天早晨遭強制就醫並在院中待了一晚等候床位,在她病倒約半小時後便不再移動。

營運這間醫院的The New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation(紐約健康與醫療公益組織)表示,包含保安人員在內有六名醫院職員已因此事件遭到開除。

前紐約市長麥可·彭博(Michael Bloomberg)亦公開譴責這段影片"令人噁心",而醫院職員的行為是天理不容的。「我想他們的意思是『常常有人在地上睡覺,所以我完全沒去注意』」他說。

Green, a Jamaican-born woman who had been involuntarily committed the previous morning and had waited overnight for a bed, stopped moving about half an hour after she collapsed.

The New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, which runs the hospital, said six people have been fired as a result of the incident, including security personnel and members of the medical staff.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he was disgusted by the tape, and that the actions of the hospital staff were unacceptable. “I think what they said is, ‘Oh well, people sleep on the floor all the time, and I didn’t pay any attention,"‘ he said.
