Burnishing Prosocial Image to Self Vs. Others

Eight field and one lab experiments show that neither self- or social-image concerns have a single, uniform influence on consumers’ generosity under elective pricing. Across these experiments we occasionally see evidence for one, occasionally for the other, and frequently for neither. We interpret the cumulative null-relationship and propose potential meaningful moderators.
