@Crispety - I wanted to say that I was watching a show in which the host was trying to demonstrate various social perception exercises based on various circumstances that the subjects were in.
For example, they had an unattractive man pretend to steal a bicycle and then a beautiful woman does the same thing. When the man attempted to steal the bicycle in the park, a number of people confronted him and even called the police.
Then the attractive woman attempted to steal the bike, and the men that passed by tried to help her steal the bike as well. It really demonstrated the definition of social perception. For some reason we see attractive people in an entirely different light than we do average looking people.
There was another instance in which a man collapsed on the floor and was ignored, but when a woman did this people immediately people around her called an ambulance. People saw the women as less threatening than the man which is why I think more people responded to her.
