Abstract:Factors affecting cooperation are rarely studied in the context of the 1-shot prisoner’s dilemma (PD) game. Many real-world interactions, however, are 1-time events, so it is important to determine how well factors studied in iterated games apply to the 1-shot PD. In the present within-subject study we systematically examine the interaction between 4 factors on cooperation in the PD that have only been studied haphazardly in the literature: symmetry, the number of negative (column) payoffs, the player’s relative position in asymmetric games, and social value orientation.
