People Overpredict the Benefit of Using Expensive Items and Appearing Rich in Friend-Making
Four studies (including a field study) find that people predict that others are more willing to befriend them if they use expensive items and appear rich, but in reality others are more willing to befriend those who do not. This self-other discrepancy occurs because people misconstrue others’ purpose of friend-making.
