In principle, assuming that utilities are approximately linear over the relevant range of payoffs, as it is the typical assumption when dealing with experimental data e. Finally, self-interest can be driving choices in both roles of the TG. Trustors who are narrowly selfish in the sense that they believe that the trustee is selfish as well so that she will not return any money, as the traditional self-interest model predicts should not trust.
On the other hand, strategic considerations could lead self-interested trustors to trust provided that they expect trustees to return at least some minimum amount. In the case of trustees, both narrow and strategic self-interest will dictate to return nothing. Based on these decisions, we were able to explore the social motives associated with each TG strategy.
For our analysis, we start from the assumption that most people are consistent in their social preferences across games, which has been supported by recent empirical evidence Yamagishi et al. Trust Game Strategies. A Describes the binary Trust Game while B depicts the classification of the strategies number of subjects in each group in parentheses.
All participants were informed about the content of the study prior to participating. Identical instructions were read aloud by the interviewers. Since literacy was not a requirement to participate this was necessary to obtain a representative sample , we could not ask participants to read and sign the IC.
Oral informed consent was obtained from all the participants included in this paper. Only those who accepted were allowed to participate. As is standard in socio-economic experiments, no ethical concerns are involved other than preserving the anonymity of the participants. No deception was used.
This procedure including the consent process was checked and approved by the Vice-dean of Research of the School of Economics of the University of Granada; the institution hosting the experiments. The survey-experiment took place in Granada Spain during the months of November and December Participants completed the survey-experiment at their households upon agreement of participation in the presence of two monitors there were a total of pairs of interviewers.
One out every 10 participants was randomly selected to get paid. In the first part, a rich set of demographic and socio-economic information was collected. In the second part, participants played three experimental games, summing up to a total of five experimental decisions: a Trust Game both roles , a Dictator Game both roles, but one is passive , and an Ultimatum Game both roles.
For each decision, participants were randomly matched with a different anonymous participant. To control for possible order or spillover effects, the order both between and within games was randomized across participants, resulting in 24 different orders always setting aside the two decisions of the same game.
A double-blind procedure was implemented by having respondents privately marking their decisions on a response card and subsequently placing it into an envelope. Matching and payment took place a few days later. All procedures were common knowledge. See Appendix for more details. In the former case, the game ends and the trustee gets a zero payoff. This version of the game is designed in a way that facilitates its application outside the lab, embedded in surveys for a detailed description, see Ermisch and Gambetta, and for an application see Ermisch et al.
Importantly, it allows identifying trust and trustworthiness behavior in a simple and rigorous way. For the role of the responder in the UG the strategy method was employed Mitzkewitz and Nagel, , in which subjects had to state their willingness to accept or reject each possible proposal beforehand. These behavioral patterns are similar to those observed in other representative and field studies e.
Also, we do not claim that individuals are concerned with just one single motive since, within subjects, multiple motives might be at play at the same time. Rather, these proxies are to be understood as simple empirical tools that may nonetheless be very helpful in uncovering the motives that are relatively more likely to be driving one, compared to another specific choice in the TG.
In the case of the DG, as mentioned earlier, either egalitarianism or altruism can trigger generous offers, whereas zero offers may be the result of either selfishness or spitefulness. For UG proposers, apart from the above motives that may underlie DG giving as well, generous offers can also emanate from efficiency concerns and from strategic self-interest, both motives grounded in the avoidance of rejection. Thus, we will characterize as efficiency concerned those individuals whose offer in the UG exceeded their own MAO.
In A1, we show the proportion of subjects that can be classified according to each of these definitions. For the statistical analysis we employed Stata 13 software. This allows us to explore the factors that impact relatively more on one TG strategy compared to the others. Regression analysis also permits us to control for a set of demographics and possible confounds. Although these relationships have been studied before e. In the first subsection, we contribute to this literature by considering both roles simultaneously.
Note that not all motives are mutually exclusive. The social motives that are independent to each other by definition are altruistic, spiteful, egalitarian, and selfish, on the one hand, and egalitarian and strategic on the other.
The inclusion of all variables in the regression at the same time serves to investigate the relative incidence of each motive, controlling for the impact of the others that are not mutually exclusive. Although we have used definitions based on previous literature, as mentioned, these can be contested as there could be other ways to define the motives.
However, we consider that our methodology is appropriate. Take the example of strategic self-interest and efficiency definitions. Yet, note that this emanates from their high UG offer rather than their low MAO, since the latter does not reflect strategic behavior of a self-interested individual i.
Thus, we consider that strategic self-interest is more accurately defined by the difference between UG offer and DG offer Steinbeis et al. Therefore, since we include all motives together in the regressions, any significant effect of efficiency is not due to strategic self-interest because the possible overlap is accounted for.
In the regression, we controlled for a number of basic variables and possible confounds including gender, age, educational level, household income, cognitive skills, and risk preferences risk preferences were elicited using hypothetical monetary incentives; see Appendix for a description of each variable.
Complete regressions comparing all groups, with and without controls are presented in Appendix Table A2. Multinomial logit output. A positive negative coefficient means that individuals with a higher lower value of that specific variable i. Controls are: gender, age, household income, educational level, cognitive skills, risk preferences, and order effects. Complete regressions comparing all groups as well as regressions without controls can be found in Appendix Table A2.
Some intermediate comparisons reach significance as well see Appendix Table A2. The case of group YN seems particularly interesting for two reasons: on the one hand, individuals belonging to this group offer relatively little in the DG but have the highest MAO, which could be an indication of either spitefulness or lack of altruism; on the other hand, compared with group YY, their UG offer is not as low as their DG offer, which could be an indication of strategic self-interest.
Lastly, the fact that the highest UG offer and the lowest MAO are observed in group YY suggests that efficiency concerns may be important for individuals belonging to this group. Our next analysis addresses these issues by studying the relative incidence of the above-defined motive profiles on each TG group. Figures 4A—F refer to altruism, spitefulness, egalitarianism, efficiency, strategic self-interest, and narrow selfishness, respectively.
Complete regressions comparing all groups, with and without controls are presented in Appendix Table A3. Incidence of each motive profile across TG groups. A—F Refer to altruism, spitefulness, egalitarianism, efficiency, strategic self-interest, and narrow selfishness, respectively. The percentages provided refer to the proportion of subjects within each group which can be classified according to each motive type. TG outcomes as a function of motive profiles.
Complete regressions comparing all groups as well as regressions without controls can be found in Appendix Table A3. These results seem to suggest that altruism is positively related with both trust especially among trustworthy individuals and trustworthiness especially among trustful individuals whereas spitefulness is negatively related with both, although more with trustworthiness.
This symmetry indicates that egalitarian considerations only matter for trustworthy but not for trusting behavior. Thus, efficiency seems to be a concern for trust only among trustworthy individuals. We now turn to self-interest. Thus, strategic considerations are apparently relevant for trust only among those individuals who are not trustworthy as trustees indeed, the difference between trustful and not trustful individuals among those who are trustworthy, i.
Lastly, with regards to the small percentage of subjects who can be classified as narrowly selfish , the incidence ranges from 1. This finding suggests that narrow self-interest only matters for trust but not for trustworthy behavior, although due to the low incidence of narrow selfishness we interpret this result with caution.
The paper presents a rich behavioral dataset from a large representative sample. One of the most striking results that emerged from the analysis is the considerable differences observed within trustful individuals: individuals who are both trustful and trustworthy group YY differ remarkably from those trustful individuals who are not trustworthy group YN.
Trust in the former group seems to be driven more by efficiency concerns and less by strategic considerations than the latter. What is more, the motivational gap between these two trypes of trustful individuals YY vs. YN seems to be more pronounced than that between group YY and group NY not trustful but trustworthy individuals. In fact, regarding efficiency and especially strategic considerations — but not regarding altruism and spitefulness — the difference of YY with YN is even larger than with NN not trustful and not trustworthy.
Note also that among untrustful individuals the differences are much less pronounced in fact groups NY and NN only differ significantly regarding one of the six motives under study: spitefulness impacts more on the latter; see Appendix Table A3. Interestingly, the only motive that is clearly related just to one single role is egalitarianism, which impacts on trustworthiness but not on trust. Consider for instance the case of the beneficial effects of trust at a macro level.
It would go a long way in either validating or discrediting each of these theories if we could know whether different trusting types are responsible for different processes. That is, are trusting individuals of one specific type more likely to be the catalysts of the cooperation-enhancing effects of trust? The answer is not obvious. It might be that these effects can be traced back solely to trustful individuals of the YY group because of their efficiency concerns.
However, it might also be that the more strategic trustful individuals of the YN group are more responsive to the threat of sanctions and thus they increase cooperation to a larger extent when norm-enforcement institutions are at play.
Analyzing these processes is an interesting endeavor for future research. From an applied point of view, these results may also have interesting implications at a more micro level. Recall here that there is a considerable fraction of individuals who decide to trust even if they believe that their trust will not be reciprocated Ashraf et al. On the other hand, individuals who trust mainly due to strategic self-interest should be matched with trustworthy individuals since otherwise cooperation would likely collapse.
Further research is needed on the interaction between trusting types and teamwork performance. The present study also reveals that we might actually be able to distinguish between efficiency concerned and strategic trustful individuals by observing their behavior as trustees in the TG. A word of caution, however, is in order here.
In this paper, we have analyzed the relative importance of different social motives for game play behavior in the TG. However, the aggregate incidence of these motives may change along with the change in expectations, for instance cross-culturally. That is, the expected behavior of the trustee may affect the importance of altruism, egalitarianism, and strategic self-interest for trusting behavior. Apart from beliefs and relatedly uncertainty , other motives might be at play at the same time.
Indeed, some people might trust or be trustworthy just for the sake of trusting or being trustworthy. For example, Dunning et al. There is also plenty of evidence that immediate or anticipated emotions, such as shame, embarrassment, and excitement, may be driving trusting and trustworthy behavior in the TG as well Loewenstein et al. Additionally, a desire to signal either to oneself or to others that one is a good person, may also lead people to trust or to be trustworthy Bodner and Prelec, ; Dunning, ; Barkan et al.
Positive reciprocity, which falls outside the distributional social preferences analyzed here, is of course another important motive driving trustworthiness. Lastly, from a more methodological point of view, regarding our empirical strategy, one might argue that people are not using consistent strategies across games as we essentially assume; Yamagishi et al. All authors listed, have made substantial, direct and intellectual contribution to the work, and approved it for publication.
The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest. Such a behavioral definition leaves the reasons underlying trust open. Measuring the SVO involves the individual making a number of typically six or nine distributional choices. Based on the these choices, the individual is classified as prosocial, individualist or competitor, with the latter two often collapsed into the proself category.
Therefore the cross-cultural evidence of the correlates of trust with economic and social indexes may in fact reflect something different than previously interpreted.

Most leadership coaching focuses on helping leaders build their skills and knowledge and close performance gaps. These are necessary, but not sufficient. Using evidence from neuroscience and his work with leaders, Dr. Henry Cloud shows that the best performers draw on another vital resource: personal and professional relationships that fuel growth and help them surpass current limits.
Popular wisdom suggests that we should not allow others to have power over us, but the reality is that they do, for better or for worse. Consider the boss who diminishes you through cutting remarks versus one who challenges you to get better. Or the colleague who always seeks the limelight versus the one who gives you the confidence to finish a difficult project. Or the spouse who is honest and supportive versus the one who resents your success.
No matter how talented, intelligent, or experienced, the greatest leaders share one commonality: the power of the others in their lives. Combining engaging case studies, persuasive findings from cutting-edge brain research, and examples from his consulting practice, Dr. Presenting a dynamic model of the impact these different kinds of connections produce, Dr. Cloud shows readers how to get more from themselves by drawing on the strength and expertise of others.

Eric Ries. Most startups fail. But many of those failures are preventable. The Lean Startup is a new approach being adopted across the globe, changing the way companies are built and new products are launched. This is just as true for one person in a garage or a group of seasoned professionals in a Fortune boardroom. What they have in common is a mission to penetrate that fog of uncertainty to discover a successful path to a sustainable business.
The Lean Startup approach fosters companies that are both more capital efficient and that leverage human creativity more effectively. It enables a company to shift directions with agility, altering plans inch by inch, minute by minute. Ries provides a scientific approach to creating and managing successful startups in a age when companies need to innovate more than ever. The Intelligent Investor, Rev.
Benjamin Graham. Reed Hastings. It has led nothing short of a revolution in the entertainment industries, generating billions of dollars in annual revenue while capturing the imaginations of hundreds of millions of people in over countries. But to reach these great heights, Netflix, which launched in as an online DVD rental service, has had to reinvent itself over and over again.
This type of unprecedented flexibility would have been impossible without the counterintuitive and radical management principles that cofounder Reed Hastings established from the very beginning. Hastings rejected the conventional wisdom under which other companies operate and defied tradition to instead build a culture focused on freedom and responsibility, one that has allowed Netflix to adapt and innovate as the needs of its members and the world have simultaneously transformed.
Hastings set new standards, valuing people over process, emphasizing innovation over efficiency, and giving employees context, not controls. At Netflix, there are no vacation or expense policies. When Hastings and his team first devised these unorthodox principles, the implications were unknown and untested.
But in just a short period, their methods led to unparalleled speed and boldness, as Netflix quickly became one of the most loved brands in the world. Jeff Haden. From Inc. It's comforting to imagine that superstars in their fields were just born better equipped than the rest of us.
When a co-worker loses 20 pounds, or a friend runs a marathon while completing a huge project at work, we assume they have more grit, more willpower, more innate talent, and above all, more motivation to see their goals through. But that's not at actually true, as popular Inc. Motivation isn't the special sauce that we require at the beginning of any major change. In fact, motivation is a result of process, not a cause.
Understanding this will change the way you approach any obstacle or big goal. Haden shows us how to reframe our thinking about the relationship of motivation to success. He meets us at our level--at the beginning of any big goal we have for our lives, a little anxious and unsure about our way forward, a little burned by self help books and strategies that have failed us in the past—and offers practical advice that anyone can use to stop stalling and start working on those dreams.
Haden takes the mystery out of accomplishment, proving that success isn't about spiritual awakening or a lightning bolt of inspiration --as Tony Robbins and adherents of The Secret believe--but instead, about clear and repeatable processes. Using his own advice, Haden has consistently drawn 2 million readers a month to his posts, completed a mile long mountain bike race, and lost 10 pounds in a month.
Success isn't for the uniquely-qualified; it's possible for any person who understands the true nature of motivation. Jeff Haden can help you transcend average and make lasting positive change in your life.
