Inborn urge to help

This article by Nicholas Wade in the New York Times is a nice look at the evidence that people seem to be born with an urge to help other people. An 18-month-old will spontaneously open a door for an adult with her hands full or pick up something for you that you dropped. File it under stuff you probably already know, but it's nice to read it explained well.
