Do you think in the event of an alien invasion humans would band together or would it be every man for himself?

Every man for himself! Duh. We humans are complete idiots and would go nuts.

It is human nature to only be out for themselves. Sure we may say we will stick together now, but when that time comes, 99% of the population will have that "f*ck you Im only looking out for number one" mentality. I myself would only be worrying about my family, and probably wouldn't worry about anyone else.

I think there'd be "clans," where people would band together in small groups, but the whole world wouldn't band together, I don't think.

see, i think we would ban together. i mean look at what happened after 9 11. or katrina. sure there will be some who branch off, but for the most part, we be there for others

I think I'd go with the "clique" idea. I think we'd take care of ourselves, sure, but also those with whom we're closest. I don't know how much we'd bond with strangers.

No, people only care about themselves, ultimately.

Every man for themselves, or small groups based on enlightened self-interest. I know for a fact I'd be pushing little old ladies towards the aliens as cannon fodder.

I for one welcome our new overlords!

Not sure about other countries, but after 9/11 there was a real sense of fraternity in America, so I would guess they might band together...for the most part anyway.

I would probably be hiding out with another person or two somewhere else even if the world were trying to band together.

For some reason, I feel like the gov't has an emergency plan for this...

That is a lie, I care about all the people around me as much as i care about myself.
I would give my Life for the survival of my friends and family.

I actually believe that we would probably band together.
In the past, we've shown that we'll fight together when what we think of as "freedom" is threatened.

I think we would band together into competing factions the aliens would then play against each other.

Humans are fairly weak animals individually. Our strength lies in our ability to cooperate, and any meaningful resistance against alien invaders would require the world's most intelligent people to come together to find a method of defeating them.

It would be better to form small resistance encampments, in different locations, while accumulating weaponry, depending on alien attributes, social Darwinism should take effect.
