Helping as a Function of Empathic Responses and Sociopathy.
Marks, Edward L.; And Others
Journal of Research in Personality, v16 n1 p1-20 Mar 1982
Investigated helping as a function of empathic anxiety (anxiety in response to modeled distress) and individual differences in sociopathic tendencies. Results indicated modeled distress produces increases in anxiety which are positively associated with helping and sociopathic individuals are less likely to help than are nonsociopathic individuals.
