Why Sometimes Recognizing Obligations Can’T Help - the Effects of Signing One’S Name on Donation Behaviors
In our research, we observed that signing one’s own name, albeit in an irrelevant context, can unobtrusively activate both feelings of self-identity (identity effect) and a sense of responsibility (duty effect). These effects, along with other factors such as self-relevance and processing style, induce a self-devoted commitment to help and impact on donation behaviors.
