Psychological consequences of money and money attitudes in dictator game
Agata Gąsiorowska , Anna Hełka
AbstractAccording to the research conducted by Vohs and her colleagues (Vohs, Mead, Goode, 2006, 2008), reminders of money cause people to behave self-sufficiently, especially revealing a smaller tendency to charity. In this paper, we wanted to check if this tendency would be present also in the dictator game, and if money activation changes just behavior, or also the evaluation of people’s own decision. We also assumed that people revealing symbolic and instrumental money attitudes would react differently to money activation. As expected, money priming caused smaller money transfers comparing to the control condition, and this effect was significant especially among those with symbolic attitude toward money. Moreover, participants who transfer at least half of the sum after money activation declared stronger negative emotions and lower satisfaction from the decision than those who made similar transfers in control condition.
