Nicht nur Angst, auch Empathie nimmt zu

 

In Zeiten der (Corona)Krise nehmen auf Twitter nicht nur Ausdrücke von Sorge und Angst zu. Die Menschen äußern sich auch öfter empathisch und kommunizieren mehr Bereitschaft, einander zu unterstützen und zu kooperieren, berichten Hannah Metzler and David Garcia und Bernard Rimé. Krisen scheinen also prosoziales Verhalten zu unterstützen.

 

Es gibt hier allerdings Unterschiede von Land zu Land. Eine mögliche Erklärung ist, dass Menschen, die schon viel über die Entwicklungen der Pandemie in anderen Ländern erfahren haben, sich häufiger mitfühlend äußern.

Not only anxiety, also prosocial emotions are on the rise

 

In times of (corona) crisis not only expressions of concern and anxiety are increasing on Twitter. People also express more often empathy and the readiness to support and cooperate with each other. Crises seem to support prosocial behaviour, found Hannah Metzler and David Garcia together with Bernard Rimé.

 

However, the scientists found differences from country to country. One possible explanation is that people who have already learned a lot about the developments of the pandemic in other countries are more likely to express compassion.

Die folgenden Grafiken zu Italien und Österreich zeigen den Verlauf bei prosozialen Äußerungen seit 1. Jänner 2020.

The following figures show the variation in prosocial expressions on Twitter since January 1, 2020.

In Italien wurden mitfühlende und unterstützende Wortmeldungen etwa zeitgleich mit dem Inkrafttreten der Ausgangssperre ab 29. Februar häufiger. Den stärksten Anstieg gab es nach der Ankündigung der landesweiten Quarantäne und dem Spendenaufruf für Krankenhäuser.

In Italy, expressions of prosociality became more frequent after February 29.  The strongest increase occurred when the nationwide quarantine and calls for donations to hospitals were announced.

In Österreich stiegen die Werte schon ab 27. Februar, bereits einige Zeit vor der Ankündigung von Ausgangsbeschränkungen — vermutlich, weil es schon zahlreiche Informationen über die Situation in Italien gab.

 

Ein weiterer möglicher Einfluss ist, dass die österreichische Regierung bei ihren Wortmeldungen von Anfang an einen großen Schwerpunkt darauf gelegt hat, dass die Menschen einander unterstützen und beispielsweise die eigenen Großeltern schützen sollen.

 

Die wissenschaftliche Analyse zu prosozialen Emotionen in Zeiten von Corona finden Sie an unserem neuen COVID-19 Info Point.

In Austria, tweets referring to prosocial behavior became more frequent after February 27, before the start of general social distancing measures.

 

 

It is likely that the increase is due to the fact that people already knew a lot about the situation in Italy. Aside from that, the Austrian government put right from the beginning a great emphasis on communicating that people should support each other, for instance by protecting their own grandparents.

 

The scientific analysis about prosocial emotions in times of the corona crisis can be found on our new COVID-19 Info Point.
