Fairness Or Compassion? Cultural Differences in Power Norms Affect Judgments of Power-Holders

This research demonstrates that European Americans (Hispanics) are predisposed to apply to power-holders injunctive norms of fairness (compassion). These cultural variations were more evident when power was salient, and emerged in the norms more likely to be endorsed, the approval of hypothetical negotiators, and the evaluations of powerful service providers.
