Innovation For Your Parents? the Impact of Lay Theories of Innovativeness on Upward Intergenerational Gift Giving

Little work has explicitly considered the determinant factors for adult offspring acting as innovation influences on their parents. This paper investigated an ignored but important phenomenon, i.e., upward intergenerational gift giving of innovation, and examined the interplay of two dimensions of lay theories of innovativeness. Counterintuitive results have been found.
