Effects of group performance and longevity on cooperative responses
Midwestern Psychological Association
We examined cooperative responses to a social dilemma as a function of group performance and group longevity. As predicted, the relationship between group success and cooperation was mediated by group identity and moderated by group longevity. Long-standing groups were less affected by negative performance feedback than short-lived groups.
