The Effectiveness of an Altruistic Appeal in the Presence and Absence of Favors.
Boster, Franklin J.; Fediuk, Thomas A.; Kotowski, Michael Ryan
Communication Monographs, v68 n4 p340-46 Dec 2001
Examines whether altruism messages are more likely to be effective in gaining compliance with an anti-social request. Finds no evidence of an effect of the norm of reciprocity; altruism message was more effective than a direct request message; and a large sex difference in a direction opposite to that reported in reviews of sex differences--males were more compliant than females.
