Social orientation and cooperative pro-social behaviour of the Polish youth
Anna Zalewska , Beata Krzywosz-Rynkiewicz
We addressed three questions: (1) Polish young peoples’ social orientations - individualistic, equal or altruistic, and their
explanations for this, (2) whether this is related to gender or age, (3) whether social orientation influences the partner’s behaviour.
362 students aged 11, 14 and 17 participated.
In this paper the Ultimatum Game (UG) was analyzed to explore two kinds of social actions - social orientations and cooperative behaviours - and their explanations of the Polish pupils. Assuming that the two kinds of social actions can have different underlying mechanism (reciprocal fairness or unconditional fairness) the game was carried out in three age groups (11, 14 17), in face to face or in a distance conditions, with Polish or Spanish distant partner. The aim of the study was to examine if social orientations and cooperative behaviours depend on game conditions and age.
