9G Self-Construal and the Visual Existence of Others’ Charitable Giving

Previous literature has revealed that viewing the charitable donations of others influences the intent to donate negatively because of a heightened state of self-sufficiency. However, we show that such an effect may be reversed depending on consumers’ self-construal. Our study derives a new perspective on donation behavior by considering self-construal.
