First of all, I think it's important to know the region in which you live in and how dangerous the community is. How would you describe your area and how it affects your behavior around strangers:

Well, it's in England, so, it's quite what a stereotypical place in England. And I don't socialise often. I'm quite happy to just watch others interact with each other.

If you have noticed a same individual walking alone (Assuming that the person has no suspicious traits), would you ever approach the person for a friendly greeting? Does the gender of the stranger affect your decision? (Example, are you more prone to approach a female or a male):

No, but if that person did talk to me, I would approach him/her in a friendly way.


If the same person appears to be troubled(ex: crying), would you approach the person then?:

Yes I know how hard it is to burden a problem. But if she/he needs some space, then I would gladly back off.

If this person approached you with a friendly greeting, what would your instant reaction be? Again, please bear in mind that we established the fact that he does not look suspicious and is a student in the same school.

Be on my friendliest mode.

No , I wouldn't approach a stranger unless it's a little kid .

I would most likely just ingore anyone who tired to talk to me as im not exactly a very social person. im not really someone who cares about any other living being. so if someone approached me friendly like, i would probally try to get them to go away being nice, but if they still won't go away, then im going to get annoyed and insult you.

I live in a suburban community where theres not TOO much crime
in the daytime i would have no problem approaching a stranger if i needed something

If you have noticed a same individual walking alone (Assuming that the person has no suspicious traits), would you ever approach the person for a friendly greeting? Does the gender of the stranger affect your decision? (Example, are you more prone to approach a female or a male):

If the person looks azn or a nice person then why not
im a guy so id probly approach the guy unless i had some friends w/ me or the girl was really cute

If the same person appears to be troubled(ex: crying), would you approach the person then?:

NO, i dont want to mess w/ someone that may want to be left alone or emotionally unstable especially if this was at night

If this person approached you with a friendly greeting, what would your instant reaction be? Again, please bear in mind that we established the fact that he does not look suspicious and is a student in the same school.

i'd probly greet him back but if he lookd like someone i wouldnt get along w/ then i would just keep on walking down instead of going into a conversation

As possibly dangerous as it isn't. It has the capability to be dangerous but it usually isn't. I trust myself to do the right thing when threatened. I have a bitchin' survival instinct and am good during darkness.


If you have noticed a same individual walking alone (Assuming that the person has no suspicious traits), would you ever approach the person for a friendly greeting? Does the gender of the stranger affect your decision? (Example, are you more prone to approach a female or a male):

I don't approach people. Its not in my nature to find and talk to people.

If the same person appears to be troubled(ex: crying), would you approach the person then?:

Now if it was a girl crying alone I might approach them but if its a guy, just standing there crying (unless he was injured on the ground crying) then I wouldn't bother.

If this person approached you with a friendly greeting, what would your instant reaction be? Again, please bear in mind that we established the fact that he does not look suspicious and is a student in the same school.

Sup. <---- My reaction.

I live in a bad neighborhood I guess. Very ghetto.

I would never approach a stranger. Even if he looked harmless. I'm more prone to females than males. Because males... can... sometimes... be... scary...?

Maybe. :/ If he was crying. I'd probably just ignore and walk away.

I'd say hi~ and try to have a conversation? :|

don't talk to strangers..
remember, do and live with this quote..
lets take ted bundy for example..
he looks decent and educated..
he has charming and inviting personality..
thats why he got to kill 30 women..
his story taught me a valubale lesson..
but wtheck.. we like breaking the rules..

How would you describe your area and how it affects your behavior around strangers:

i live in a third world country.. so houses here are right bside the street.. but our street is like 20 steps wide.. all kinds of people are here.. we got a neighbor who got murdered in his house..

If you have noticed a same individual walking alone (Assuming that the person has no suspicious traits), would you ever approach the person for a friendly greeting?

i have to be honest if he/she asks for time or place ill talk to him/her.. more than that conversation is not alright with me..

If the same person appears to be troubled(ex: crying), would you approach the person then?:

eee.. no.. ill act as if im not seeing her/him.. meeeean..

If this person approached you with a friendly greeting, what would your instant reaction be? Again, please bear in mind that we established the fact that he does not look suspicious and is a student in the same school.

unfortunately ill say hi back if he/she looks presentable.. and i wont take a longer conversation than 3 mins. max.. and i wont go with him/her anywhere..

Well I've lived in 3 areas...Vietnam/ Queens (NY)/ and Jamaica...It makes a huge difference where you live...In nam i wouldnt be scared to approach anybody so my behaviour around strangers isnt affected, but in QUeens it's so scary...the prople there freaked me out completely, sure there were NIce ppl, but in truth ive heard too many stories about NY so i was freaked out... and became pretty anti social...in Jamaica it was amazing...I lived in an area with Chinese ppl and it was really comfortable, but some of the balck ppl were really niice and were so kind. Race doesnt really affect me, but from the media's way of portraying certasin kinds of ppl, in my mind i feel affected.


If you have noticed a same individual walking alone (Assuming that the person has no suspicious traits), would you ever approach the person for a friendly greeting? Does the gender of the stranger affect your decision? (Example, are you more prone to approach a female or a male):

No its just gender, no matter what the gender I would approach...But id hesitate to talk to a girl, because i dont want her to think im flirting with her..plus..i have a girlfriend..........*I love you Jessica<3*.......So neither way id be okay. I'll approach a girl or guy doesnt matter, its just sometimes depending on how the girl is...in my mind and how i imagine...ill hesitate.

If the same person appears to be troubled(ex: crying), would you approach the person then?:

Yes without a doubt, because Its the right thing to do...im a little anti social, but i can't stand to watch someone cry or hear it, Id have to help.

If this person approached you with a friendly greeting, what would your instant reaction be? Again, please bear in mind that we established the fact that he does not look suspicious and is a student in the same school

I would reply nicely too, i mean its only common decency, but my trust for them wouldnt be all of sudden high, Id be niice, but id have my limits.

If I am with a group of people I wouldn't notice them probably, fi I did it wouldn't bother me but I know for a fact my friends would joke "ooo he's a killer" I cna even think of the guy who'll say itXD


If you have noticed a same individual walking alone (Assuming that the person has no suspicious traits), would you ever approach the person for a friendly greeting? Does the gender of the stranger affect your decision? (Example, are you more prone to approach a female or a male):

No, I don't approach strangers unless I want to help them in a public setting with many people

If the same person appears to be troubled(ex: crying), would you approach the person then?:

No, I wouldn't if I were alone cause I'd be at home/my dorm or sleeping at that time. If Im with my friends I'll ask my friends with they want to ask whats wrong

If this person approached you with a friendly greeting, what would your instant reaction be? Again, please bear in mind that we established the fact that he does not look suspicious and is a student in the same school.


Well, I'm usually alone myself but I dont care if he talks to me I'll talk back. I have done it lots of times. No one comes to talk to me but I talk to people if they are playing an instrument only in school. Because they will generally be alone and not give me dirty looks I TRAP THEM MUAHAHAHA IM THE CRAZY ONE

Don't think i'd approach the person for a friendly greeting. That would be pretty random. i would prefer to make friends in a more suitable social interactions like parties or on my class. What's more is that.. actually i think people are scared to randomly open up to that non-suspicious person. Not the other way around.

If the same person appears to be troubled(ex: crying), would you approach the person then?:

I don't trust strangers that easily. If it's a girl i would. Girls appears less threatening. Plus who knows? she might be hot. And also depends on my mood at that time. There is couple of occassion once in a blue moon when i feel emphatic to other people. Then no matter what gender it is as long as they look non-threatening i would try to help.

If this person approached you with a friendly greeting, what would your instant reaction be? Again, please bear in mind that we established the fact that he does not look suspicious and is a student in the same school.

I like making new friends. I would be suspicious at first because the interaction scenario seems like it's too random. But if the person is actually cool, I'd hang out for a while.

my area is generally pretty safe. not many crimes happen, and there's only maybe 5-10 fights during the entire school year. around strangers it depends on the person. most people won't talk to someone randomly walking in the hallway, but most will talk to strangers sitting next to them in the classroom.

If you have noticed a same individual walking alone (Assuming that the person has no suspicious traits), would you ever approach the person for a friendly greeting? Does the gender of the stranger affect your decision? (Example, are you more prone to approach a female or a male):

i don't talk to people i don't know in the hallway. that's just really random. even if it was a really hot asian girl i probably wouldn't just go up and start talking. it's just not really something you would do...

If the same person appears to be troubled(ex: crying), would you approach the person then?:

no it's not my business.

If this person approached you with a friendly greeting, what would your instant reaction be? Again, please bear in mind that we established the fact that he does not look suspicious and is a student in the same school.

i would be like yeah hey... and wonder wtf are you doing?
