The American hate paradigm has been successfully proven in a cross cultural study known as the Ultumatum Game.

people.hss.caltech.edu...

I can't link information due to being a mobile device.


The ultimatum game is a game in economic experiments. The first player (the proposer) receives a sum of money and proposes how to divide the sum between himself and another player. The second player (the responder) chooses to either accept or reject this proposal.


From Google.

They found that Americans would return the money no matter what out of spite for not receiving a better cut. They also found that more indigenous cultures would feel happy for the person who got the money and they would just feel happy for being apart.

I read the ENTIRE report.

Where did you come up with the "American hate paradigm" headline?

America is certainly more of a "Game Show" culture than the isolated Peruvian tribe that is the focus of this paper, however "word of the game had spread and people were anxious to play" I bet they had already made side deals with each other to make sure EVERYONE got paid. Small village after all.

This "study" is, well, to quote Dean Yeager, "Your theories are the worst kind of popular tripe, your methods are sloppy, and your conclusions are highly questionable! "

No they didn't. Not at all. Lots of Americans took the money, The sharp change comes when the range goes to or below an 80/20 split.

They responded more to the "researchers" liking when the stakes were raised from $10 to $100.

Abe is right, study seems to say that Americans reject offers below 20% in comparison to 15% more frequently. Didn't see anything implying they would reject 'no matter what'.

Or maybe it's an entitlement paradigm where they feel they are entitled to more despite not working for it.

I did not even read the study and now that I have I see evidence for it.


Similarly, Hoffman et al. (1991) show that
when participants believe that some individuals have “earned the right” to be proposers,
offers tend to be lower, and responders are more likely to accept low offers, than when
roles are perceived as randomly assigned.


So basically the more a person believes they deserve the money they did nothing to earn the more likely they are to reject lower offers.

Indonesia showed the same results as America, so should you not label this Human Hate Paradigm?

That's putting it mildly. ...and a ghostbusters reference...

Thread title should be changed, it's just an excuse to spew anti american garbage, it's not found anywhere in the research.

They spent $55,000 on this ridiculousness?

No, because this is a " Bash Americans" thread.
