The (Mis)Perception of Altruistic Individuals: an Inference of Intertemporal Preferences

How are altruistic individuals perceived by others? Past research examined perceptions such as warmth and competence. This research examines an additional, temporal dimension to this perception, whereby altruistic (vs. less altruistic) individuals are perceived to have greater long-term preference. Ironically, we show they are misperceived compared to reality.
