Wine For the Table: Self-Construal and Choosing For Large Versus Small

We find that number of choice recipients and self-construal determine choice on behalf of self and others. Across four studies, both independents and interdependents account for others’ preferences when choosing for a small group. When choosing for a large group, however, personal preferences drive independents’, but not interdependents’, choices.
