Standing against Bullying is in Genes
No one likes bullying and this is the reason that people support the sufferer or they show sympathy for the one, who is at the suffering end. It is not a novel phenomenon, but the one, which has been noticed among ancestors as well.
While going through these simple facts, researcher Sergey Gavrilets from University of Tennessee, came across a thought that why one would lend support to the weaker party knowing that things could turn ugly for him as well. In order to know the same, he conducted a study, which has been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
In the study, Gavrilets has developed a mathematical model and through this he got to know that humans help each other at the time when they know that there are not many resources by which a person, who is being bullied, will be able to save himself.
In that condition, they find help to be the most important tool. â€śItâ€™s genetically controlled but, at the same time, we also have a genetically controlled tendency and motivation to resist being dominated by othersâ€ť, said Gavrilets.
It should also be noticed that standing against bullying also depends on cultural behavior, genes and oneâ€™s moral conduct.
