In the Aftermath of an Earthquake: the Interactive Role of Self-Construal and Victim Group-Status in Charitable Behavior

Building on self-construal theory, this research examines the conditions under which interdependents are more/less charitable than independents. Doing so, we identify the moderating influence of victim group-status (in vs. out) and the mediating role of lay beliefs (e.g., extent to which one believes helping others promotes happiness) in the process.
