If a building was on fire and you could either save FIVE STRANGERS or ONE SIBLING...

who would you choose to save? You can't save both or 4 strangers and your sibling. You can only choose either your sibling or the 5 strangers.

I think I would save my sibling. I know it's selfish, but I can't imagine not trying to save my sibling first.

  • I can't lie. I would save my sibling. I have 4 siblings and if any single one of them were in trouble I would absolutely save them first. Maybe that sounds horrible and maybe that makes me a terrible person but every time I went to answer this question with the answer "5 people" my 3 sister's and my brother's faces popped into my head.

    I COULD NOT...ABSOLUTELY COULD NOT leave my brother or any of my sisters to die in order to save others. I would feel HORRID and it would probably haunt me forever BUT what would haunt me more is knowing I could have saved my sibling and didn't.

  • My sister. Didn't even have to think about it. I would die before I let anything happen to my sister.

  • I'd save whoever I could get to first, simple as that.

  • 5 strangers. I adore my sister and I would save her instead of myself, but 5 lives are worth more than 1, even if that one life is worth more to me..

  • I don't have any siblings but I would save my best friend who is like a sister to me first. Selfish, but let's be honest. If my best friend wasn't there at all I wouldn't mind risking my life. I would worry about getting myself out of the building!

  • I hate when people don't answer with the options they are given. They just make up their own new option. The options are "sibling" or "strangers". I would save my sibling.

  • I agree with ObbyDobby. Whoever I can help first is who gets my aid.
