Skilled players cooperate less in multi-player games
MetadataShow full item record
A naturalistic public good experiment is used to examine whether better players cooperate more or less than others. ‘Better’ is measured by subjects’ accuracy in a team-based shooting game, and cooperation is measured by introducing a public good decision into the game. A data set of 92 subjects was created and results show that better players cooperate significantly less than others. Economic theory is used to explain the result.
