  1. 1. What is social facilitation? Norman Triplett (1898) noticed that cyclists would cycle faster when they were with other people than if they were alone. He believed that if there was a competitive element to the environment that it improved a person’s performance. Co-action: working alongside – not with – another person on a task. Social facilitation: Facilitation means to make something easier – social facilitation is where performance in a task is improved when there are other people working on the same task with you. Allport (1924) didn’t believe that the improved performance was due to competition – he found that simply having another person doing the same task produced social facilitation. Dashiell (1930) discovered that simply having an audience can improve performance – audience effect.
