I Shared What You Did Last Summer: Indirect Impression Management and Subsequent Prosocial Behaviors

This research examines the consequences of an under-studied, yet prevalent indirect impression-management tactic: communicating the prosocial behaviors of others. We find that when individuals publically communicate (vs. think about or privately write about) the positive behaviors of others, this can lead the communicator to behave less prosocially on subsequent tasks.
