    I get embarrassed, but the more embarrassed you are, the more people will get the urge to laugh lol. So, I try to hide my embarrassment. If I see it happen to someone, I'll laugh internally, but I won't show it.

    for me, it depend on the person, if he/she just laugh about it, then i will laugh too while helping her/him, but if he/she embarrassed then i will just keep quiet while helping..of course not big laugh that intended to humiliated him/her, just a little laugh or just smile..

    They don't really care but it might be funny, just laugh along too, small incidents like this usually brighten other peoples mood, it's not a negative thing, more like a fun suprise lol.

    Usually if you trip, just stand back up, dust yourself and walk away nonchalantly. No event is Important in itself, the amount of attention you attach to it decides it's value. For example in an area of high crimes, people will be unperturbed even in face of serious crimes.
    Give it no attention and others will ignore it as well. If others laugh, smile a0nd move on.

    I just snicker to myself and go on about my day, soon forgetting it, overwhelmed by the dystopia I am living in.

    I think that would still be fine. I remember how people would clap and cheer when someone dropped his food at the school's cafeteria. The moment it happened, you would have dozens of people clapping and saying, "YEA! Way to go, champ!" So I guess it depends on where you trip lol. As long it's not in a school, people probably won't care.

    I will laugh and depend on the distance, if I'm the nearest person I will reluctantly help, but if not I will just passing by

    You have to manage to get yourself undressed, while tripping and then make weird, loud sounds to get my attention. This would grant you a place in my memory for about 5 minutes, but on the next day I would probably even forget how you look like.
    It's a different matter if I see you regularly. Then, I would attach positive feelings to your face, because you amused me a little bit.
    It's totally different if I know you. I would tease the hell out of you (only if you actually care about this), but as mentionend before only tripping isn't enough. You have to do something ridiculous and not some simple lame tripping.
    Usually random people on the streets don't care, even if they laugh in their mind and remember you for the day. It's something good, that you helped them out of their boring lifes for a bit, even if they forget about your "hard work" very fast.

    How bad is the fall?

    Harmless fall on basically flat terrain is pretty funny, yeah.

    I'd be really worried and trying my best to help if its somehwere steep and dangerous.

    Depends on how you tripped, but this is what I tell close friends of mine who get paranoid over how people see them, "You're not a superstar, much less a famous person. Even if they laughed at you or judged you, they're ultimately strangers. Don't give them a second of your time. Move on.".
