Perceptions of help-rendering and harm-doing were tested by presenting 50 male and 50 female university students with one of a series of hypothetical situations. Preexisting relationship between interactors in the situation referred to five social relationships linking the subject with a parent, sibling, close friend, and acquaintance, or a stranger. Results indicated that the closer the relationship between the interacting persons, the stronger the expectations that help should be offered; the less gratitude expressed when help is offered; and the more resentment felt when help is refused.
