dc.description.abstractPrevious research suggests that individuals who are more religious with positive relationships and in low personal cost situations are more likely to help. To test these theories, scenarios of varying costs, questionnaires, and two relationship conditions were given to 40 university students. There was no significant difference in willingness to help among the cost, religiousness or relationship conditions or in perceived altruism in the cost or relationship conditions. There was a significant difference in willingness to help. These results suggest there is no significant connection between cost, religion, or relationship alone, but multiple reasons affect the decision to help or not.
