A Theory of Representative Behavior in the Dictator Game

Abstract: In this paper we present a model of representative behavior in the dictator game. Individuals have simultaneous and non-contradictory preferences over monetary payoffs, altruistic actions and equity concerns. We require that these behaviors must be aggregated and founded in principles of representativeness and empathy. The model results match closely the observed mean split and replicate other empirical regularities (for instance, higher stakes reduce the willingness to give). In addition, we connect representative behavior with an allocation rule built on psychological and behavioral arguments. An approach consistently neglected in this literature. Key words: Dictator Game, Behavioral Allocation Rules, Altruism, Equity Concerns, Empathy, Self-interest JEL classification

How The Brain Processes The Emotions — PsyBlog

How The Brain Processes The Emotions — PsyBlog | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it
Tastes good? Despite how individual our emotions feel to us, the brain processes them in a remarkably similar way.

The brain translates emotions into a standard code that’s similar across people, a new study finds. While happiness and sadness might feel quite different to us, the brain actually represents these emotions in a remarkably similar way (Cornell University neuroscientist Adam Anderson, senior author of the study, explains: “We discovered that fine-grained patterns of neural activity within the orbitofrontal cortex, an area of the brain associated with emotional processing, act as a neural code which captures an individual’s subjective feeling. Population coding of affect across stimuli, modalities and individuals.” This finding contrasts to the established view which is that there are specific, separate regions in the brain for positive and negative emotions.

We have thinking tendencies (biases) such as:
seeking out information to support what we already
believe (confirmation bias), over-valuing information we
receive early on in an evaluation (anchoring and the halo
effect), and feeling the pain of a loss more acutely than
the pleasure of a similar gain (loss aversion).
These tendencies can affect learning of subject
content, your (and your pupils’) evaluation of their
ability, and effort levels

3 Behavior Change Experts Debate: What Does It Take To Kick Bad Money Habits?

3 Behavior Change Experts Debate: What Does It Take To Kick Bad Money Habits? | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it

If you’ve ever experienced a sense of euphoria after paying off your credit card in full or purchasing a piece of furniture thatfinally completes your living room, you know that our relationship to money isn’t just a purely economical one.

There’s a big psychological component, too.

And this is exactly why a growing number of scholars these days are studying behavioral psychology and economics—in tandem.

The reason: They want to figure out how to best capitalize on our emotions—the pride we feel when a savings account balance grows or the panic that ensues when a hefty bill arrives in the mail—in order to help us adopt more productive money habits.

Scholars like Jonathan Zinman, Hersh Shefrin and Julie Agnew—all luminaries in the field of finance-related behavior change techniques. And the very kind of people whose brains we love to pick for advice on how to work toward kicking unproductive habits—say, like a never-ending cycle of overspending—in order to get on the right financial track.

Each one of them has a unique perspective to share, so read on and you may just glean a good money habit or two.
