Abstract

Research has shown that collective failure tends to reduce cooperative responses to social dilemmas. Applying a personality x situation model to this issue, we found that prosocial tendencies influenced intragroup cooperation after collective failure but not after collective success. This effect was mediated by group identity, expectations, and group-focused thoughts.
