Accountability and Helping: When Needs Exceed Resources
Adelberg, Sheldon; Batson, C. Daniel
Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 36, 4, 343-50, Apr 78
In this study, a bogus service agency was created in which male university students allocated financial resources among six financial aid applicants under various conditions of accountability and sufficiency of resources. Results showed that when applicants' needs exceeded resources, accountability led to less effective use of resources than did no accountability. (Author/JMB)
