Exposure to business-related objects and pictures may affect how well people cooperate.[@@]
Christian Wheeler, a marketing researcher at Stanford University, has been studying the effects of business-oriented pictures and business-related objects on test participants’ behavior, according to a summary of the research.
In one study, Wheeler and other researchers gave participants $10 each and asked the participants to decide how much they were willing to share with a partner.
The partner could refuse any offer thought to be too low. If a partner rejected an offer, neither participant would receive anything.
