Reciprocal Altruism As a Motivation For Sharing: Sharing Up Verses Sharing Down
This research focuses on social comparison and reciprocity expectations in sharing. In four studies we show that due to expected reciprocity, people are more willing to share their possessions with a high-performing (vs. low-performing) others. However, this preference to share-up (vs. share-down) diminishes when the possibility of reciprocation is removed.
