Yeh, there's a hypothetical burning building, you can save the 5 strangers near you or go to the back of the building and save your one sibling, in which case the 5 strangers die.
So what would you choose?

Call me a selfish dirt bag, but probably sibling. My family is my world...they'll almost always come first.

Yeah, me too, I only have one sister, she's 9, and tbh she's the only person I would die for. I love her more than anyone, even my parents. Blood is thicker than water, selfish as that may be.

what do you know about the strangers? age at least?

In normal cases I'd seriously consider the strangers, but I'm pretty sure that my older brother will go on to save lots of lives and do the world good, so I'd save him, unless I knew what the strangers were going to do.

I'd die for mine too. Even though those 5 people may be better in the grand scheme of things, but my sister is better for me. If you get me?

One of those 5 people's sibling would save his over yours.

I think anyone who would save 5 strangers over their sibling would be crazy, personally.

I mean, I don't have a sibling, but I would rather save a close family member than a hundred strangers. I would rather save them than a whole continent of strangers.

And these strangers' families would probably feel the same way.

I'd save my sibling over a thousand strangers.

Don't mistake love for selfishness.
