Changing the World, One Word At a Time: the Effect of Font Size on Prosocial Intention

Expecting to have an impact can be a powerful driver of prosocial behavior. In four studies, we find the visual effect of writing prosocial intentions (e.g., monetary pledges) in a relatively larger (vs. regular) font increases people’s impact expectations, leading them to express greater prosocial intentions (e.g., larger pledge amounts).
