This unit was BONUS6 in CAPS87 and BONUS7 in CAPS88. Instructions changed slightly between the two administrations. Generosity to partnership vs team vs department/group vs individual This situation has elements of the classic prisoner's dilemma game: if everyone cooperates in choices where the give option is greater than the take option then each is better off than if all defect or take. But each person gains the most in these situations by taking, because regardless of the other s' choices, the defector always saves the money they would have given. The ideal situation from a short term financial view point is to hope the others give and then take yourself. From a long term perspective it is better for all to give. This experiment, in varying forms, was run four other times during the semester. In the previous versions, all money taken or given came from the CAPS coffers. In the current survey, the money given came from the individual's account and was supplemented by CAPS money. In previous versions, half of the participants were told the others in the group to whom they could give were being given the same choice. For the others, no comment was made about the possibility of reciprocity. In t his experiment, all participants were told that everyone in their department was being given the same choice. Each participant was given the choice to give up to $3 from their own account, to be split among the others in their partnership, team, or department. For every 10 cents given, CAPS matched the gift with an additional 2 cents. The format of the question was counterbalanced, so that the options to give to each of partnership, team, or department appeared in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd position equally. Half the participants were asked to give to their partnership, team, and departments as whole groups. They entered the total per group they wanted to give. The other half of the participants were asked how much they wished to give to each individual in each group. In a second split, half of the participants received an unconditional bonus. Half of these were given $5 for their individual account and informed that their teammates had likewise received $5 each. The other half of the recipients were informed that $24 had been deposited in their team account. See codebook for additional information
