Does Asking Make a Difference? Effects of Initiator, Possible Gain, and Risk on Attributed Altruism.
Quigley, Barbara; And Others
Journal of Social Psychology, v129 n2 p259-67 Apr 1989
Investigates three variables related to attributed altruism: (1) the effects of initiating prosocial behavior; (2) the potential gain or loss for the prosocial actor; and (3) the possible risk for the prosocial actor. Determines that any evidence of selfish motivation detracts from perceived altruism, and that no evidence of selfish motivation results in positive attributions. (Author/LS)
