Only equality matters: Prosocials don’t minimize outcome differences that cannot be eliminated

Sammanfattning (abstract):
Social value orientation theory makes two propositions about the motive of proso-cials; one that prosocials maximize the joint outcome between self and another person, another that prosocials minimize the difference in outcomes. Eek and Gärling (2005) showed that the first of these propositions was false. The present experiment aimed at testing the validity of the second proposition. Based on re-search showing that equality is considered a fair division of outcomes, it was ar-gued and found that prosocials strive to obtain equal outcomes. If their choices only minimize the difference in outcomes without achieving equal outcomes, pro-socials’ and proselfs’ choices don’t differ
