  1. Helpfulness

    In social psychology, the everyday concept of helpfulness is really technically defined as the property of providing useful assistance, and friendliness evidenced by a kindly and helpful disposition [syn: kindliness]. For many years, social psychologists have been searching for answers to these questions: ⁕Why, and when, will people help? ⁕Who will help? ⁕What can be done to lessen indifference and increase helping?
