fo_scenario1aWe conducted a study on sharing behavior with about 100 children aged 3-5 years old. Children participated in two sessions each week for three weeks. Children always participated in private with one of our study staff. Children were split into two groups: Group 1 was given opportunities to share as normal, while Group 2 was given incentives for sharing more.

In the first day, each child was given 10 stickers and asked how many he or she would like to share with another child that they did not know. Children shared about 3 stickers on average, and this amount did not differ by group.

In the second session, each child was again given 10 stickers and asked how many he or she would like to share with another child that they did not know. But this time,
• Nothing changed for Group 1
• Group 2 children were told that they would get a candy if they shared more than 5 stickers (more than half).
Group 1 shared 3.3 stickers on average. We'd like you to guess how much Group 2 shared on average. Remember, Group 2 was told they would get a candy if they shared more than 5 stickers. Please move the slider to how many stickers you think Group 2 shared. The starting point of the slider is the amount picked up by Group 1.
forecast scenario 1a
fo_scenario1bGroup 2 children were offered candy for sharing more than 5 stickers (out of 10) two times during that same week.

In the third week, each child was again given 10 stickers and asked how many he or she would like to share with another child that they did not know.

This time, neither Group 1 nor Group 2 received candy for sharing.

Group 1 shared 2.5 stickers on average. We’d like you to guess how much Group 2 shared on average. Remember, in the prior week Group 2 was told they would get candy if they shared more than 5 stickers, but this time Group 2 did not get any candy for sharing more. Please move the slider to how many stickers you think Group 2 shared. The starting point of the slider is the amount picked up by Group 1.

fo_scenario2aWe conducted a study on helping behavior with about 100 children aged 3-5 years old. Children participated in two sessions each week for three weeks. Children always participated in private with one of our study staff. Children were split into two groups: Group 1 was given opportunities to help as normal, while Group 2 was given incentives for helping more.

In the first session, each child was shown 10 pieces of paper trash on the floor and given the opportunity to help the study staff put it in the trash bin or watch a movie in the corner of the room. Children picked up about 3 pieces of trash on average, and this amount did not differ by group.

In the second session, each child was again shown 10 pieces of paper trash and asked how many he or she would like to help pick up. But this time,
• Nothing changed for Group 1.
• Group 2 children were told that they would get a candy if they helped pick up more than 5 pieces of trash (more than half).
Group 1 helped pick up 3.4 pieces of paper trash on average. We’d like you to guess how many Group 2 picked up on average. Remember, Group 2 was told they would get a candy if they helped pick up more than 5 pieces of trash. Please move the slider to how many pieces of trash you think Group 2 picked up. The starting point of the slider is the amount picked up by Group 1.

fo_scenario2bGroup 2 children were offered candy for helping pick up more than 5 pieces of trash (out of 10) two times during that same week.

In the third week, each child was again shown 10 pieces of paper trash and asked how many he or she would like to help pick up.

This time, neither Group 1 nor Group 2 received candy for helping.

Group 1 helped pick up 3.1 pieces of trash on average. We’d like you to guess how much Group 2 helped pick up on average. Remember, in the prior week Group 2 was told they would get candy if they picked up more than 5 pieces of trash, but this time Group 2 did not get any candy for helping more. Please move the slider to how many pieces of trash you think Group 2 picked up. The starting point of the slider is the amount picked up by Group 1.
