"Hmmmmmm, I think I'll call it 'The Bystander Effect'. Yes! Great name. Now, I just need a sciencey sounding name for when people just stand around and do nothing while something is happening....... aha! 'diffusion of responsibility'!"
You know it's true.
Well, it just creeps over the line in front of 1/10 of a degree...but only just.
Some of it makes sense. Given it's dealing with something we don't even fully understand yet, it's probably not going to be foolproof. Doctors and scientists have a fair bit of a headstart on those in the psych field as far as the amount of time they've already spent researching their field since the year it all started. Psych's only just over 100 years old.
I have to admit though, I found the part where you repeat what the person's said back to them in the counselling subject to be a bit off-putting. If someone sat there repeating things back to me I'd want to knock them out after about 5 minutes.

Fact: cats, when dropped always land on their feet.
Fact: drop a piece of bread on the ground and it always lands buttered side down.
Assumption: a piece of bread is strapped to a cat's back, buttered side up.
Question: When dropped from 1 foot off the ground, will the cat/ bread arrangement land:
a. cat first, on it's feet?
b. bread first, buttered side down?
c. will not land at all, but get 6 inches off the ground and begin spontaneously spinning around, defying gravity?
Bonus point: give reasons for your conclusion.

Nah, it's an assumed fact for the purposes of the question. It's also a fact from my experience since childhood, and having conducted experiments from sea level, the Australian Alps and at the top of Sydney Tower.
Land on its side. haha
