Participants received a dice in order to determine their payoff anonymously. Whatever they reported to have rolled, they received as payoff. 39% of the subjects were honest and maximally 22% of them were lying completely. Interestingly we found subjects who lied but who did not maximize their income by doing so. Using additional experiments, we can show that a compelling explanation for this behavior is the desire to maintain a favorable self-concept, including honesty and non-greediness.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dc:contributor>Fischbacher, Urs</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Fischbacher, Urs</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Lies in Disguise : an experimental study on cheating</dcterms:title> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-25T09:40:42Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Heusi, Franziska</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
